How do we monitor and review the progress and provision
of children with SEND?
In school, we follow the ‘graduated response’ to assess, plan, do and review progress and provision of all children with SEND.
What this means:
- The teacher and SENCo carefully monitor the progress and provision of your child.
- Teaching assistants and teachers carry out assessments to set new targets for children with Individual Target Plans (ITPs) at least three times a year.
- The SENCo uses ITP tracker tools to assess your child’s rate of progress.
- The teacher, teaching assistant and child with communication and interaction, social and emotional or Sensory and Physical needs will update a Pupil Profile at least twice a year to ensure clear the child’s personalised needs, interests, targets and best ways to support are identified and planned for.
- The teacher and SENCo check that the additional support and intervention your child receives is planned, delivered and monitored carefully so they can assess the effectiveness and impact of the additional support and intervention.
- Class teachers, SENCo, Teaching Assistants and the Senior Leadership Team (SLT) discuss the progress and provision of children with SEND in half-termly phase and weekly SLT meetings.
- The SENCo will regularly discuss the progress and provision of children specialist agency support, Support Plans and Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs) with specialist agencies and medical professionals.
Who will explain this to you?
- Class teachers will meet with parents/carers at least on a termly basis or as a review of termly targets to discuss and review your child’s needs, support and progress.
- The SENCo is available to discuss and provide further information.
- The SENCo will arrange a meeting with parents to gain their consent before referring their child to or involving any specialist agency or medical professionals support.
- The SENCo will send letters to parents to inform them when a specialist agency will come into school to observe or assess their child. In addition, the SENCo will invite parents into school to discuss any specialist agency reports or advice school has been given about their child.
- The SENCo will hold a half-yearly Support Plan review meeting with parents and specialist agencies to assess the progress and provision of children with Support Plans.
- The SENCo will hold an annual EHCP review meeting with parents and specialist agencies to assess the progress and provision of children with Education and Health Care Plans (EHCPs).
- The SENCo will hold an early EHCP review meeting with parents and specialist agencies if a request is made by the parent for alternative provision.
