9. How can I be sure that my child is making progress?

Your child’s progress is continually monitored by his/her class teacher.

His/her progress is reviewed formally every term and the school records their progress in reading, writing and maths on Target Tracker. Progress in other areas, as appropriate, such as attendance, engagement in learning and behaviour, speech and language, is also monitored.

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.

The progress of children with an Education Health Care Plan is formally reviewed at an Annual Review with all adults involved with the child’s education.

The SENCo will also check that your child is making good progress within any individual work and in any group that they take part in.

A range of ways will be used to keep you informed, which may include:

  • Home/school book
  • Letters/certificates sent home
  • Additional meetings as required
  • Reports
  • Parent consultations
