Use of case studies to support Ofsted visits
I am currently the whole school lead on tracking data. We have found that with around 10 EHCP students and 30 SEN Support students in a year group of around 200, one student can greatly skew the results for the group (both percentage achieving a certain threshold or progress 8). Two students who underachieved or missed their final exams can make a large difference to progress 8 results. To help our knowledge of the needs of the pupils within this group we prepare short case studies of a couple of sentences describing the needs of the groups and support they have had to help overcome these needs. This has worked successfully in helping explains results that look low to Ofsted and governors.
