How will I know if the school is supporting my child? How will I know how my child is doing? How is student progress monitored?
- The school will always send you a letter to let you know if we are proposing to offer your child support that is additional to or different from what is already in place for all mainstream students. Your child will have specific targets linked to that support and the intended outcomes. We will review progress and share this information with you as appropriate, depending on the type and length of the intervention.
- For children with more complex needs, we may create a Pupil Profile to share information, strategies and targets with all of your child’s teachers easily. You and your child are asked to help compile and review this document. Sometimes it is helpful to meet in school to review and plan together. At other times, a phone call or written communication is more appropriate.
- Parent consultation evenings is an opportunity to discuss your child’s progress and needs and to find out about support options.
- We report to parents annually about their child’s attainment, targets and progress in each curriculum area in written reports.
- Parents are always welcome to contact their child’s Form Tutor or subject teachers at any time to discuss particular concerns as they arise.
- The effectiveness, impact and quality of the support / interventions is reviewed half termly by the class teacher and the SENCo. This is feedback into the analysis of the child’s needs and the support is revised in light of the child’s progress and development. Parents will be informed about the impact of the support and interventions provided, enabling them to be involved in planning next steps.
Students with EHCPs:
- Students will have an Annual Review of their progress and needs. This comes in the form of a full written school report in advance of a meeting between parents and staff. During this meeting, students, parents and staff have the chance to express their views about the progress being made and the provision they are receiving at school.
