How will we measure the progress of your child in school?

Your child’s progress is continually monitored by his/her class teacher through a regular cycle of Pupil Progress meetings that are attended by members of the Senior Leadership Team and the SENCo.

His/her progress is reviewed formally every term by the Class Teacher and assessment stages are given in reading, writing and maths.

If your child is in Year 1 and above, but is not yet reaching expected levels, a more sensitive assessment tool is used which shows their level in more detail and will also show smaller but significant steps of progress. The levels are called ‘P levels’.

At the end of each key stage (i.e. at the end of year 2 and year 6) all children are required to be formally assessed using Standard Assessment Tests (SATS). This is something the government requires all schools to do and are the results that are published nationally.

Children who currently have a Statement/Education Health Care Plan or receive additional support from external professionals will have an SEN review which looks at the current support in place for your child. This is reviewed termly with your involvement, and the plan for the next term made.

In addition to this the progress of children with a statement of SEND/ EHC Plan is formally reviewed at an Annual Review with parents, class teacher, SENCo and other professionals who may be involved with the child’s education.

The SENCo will also review and check that your child is making good progress within any intervention groups that they take part in during the school year.
