Leadership of SEND
Best practice in this area includes:
- From their different starting points, and considering their individual academic and non-academic needs, pupils make expected progress and both internal and national data sets are used to evidence this.
- School systems promote parent/carer contributions to maximise outcomes for pupils with SEND.
- Progress for pupils, across year groups and with differing SEND needs, is consistently strong, with evidence available through analysis of both internal and national data sets.
- School records indicate that regular moderation takes place, both internally and with local and/or national partners.
- The school is engaging with a range of methodologies for preparing pupils for the next stage in their education, training, employment, and independent life.
- School records indicate that types, rates and patterns of bullying show that it is not a concern for any specific groups of pupils; the school’s actions to prevent and tackle all forms of bullying and harassment are said to be effective.
