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 a National Curriculum level given in Reading, Writing, Maths and Science as well as progress in other areas, as appropriate, such as attendance, engagement in learning and behaviour.

If your child is in Year 1 and above, but is not yet at National Curriculum 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.

The progress of children with a statement of SEN/ EHC 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
  • Parents Evenings
