Challenging targets are agreed at Annual Review by all those supporting the child and where appropriate the child themselves.
The targets aim to break down barriers to learning and maximise opportunities for living independent, fulfilling lives in the future.
Annual review targets are broken down and addressed through Individual Education Plans. (IEP’s) IEPs are reviewed termly and provide the basis for the teacher’s planning.
We use a wide range of approaches to assess and record pupil progress, this includes:
- Ongoing teacher assessment recorded in books
- Moderated curricular assessment comparing current progress to others with similar starting points.
- Annual Review / IEP progress and evidence of pupils overcoming barriers to learning can be found in their individual portfolios.
- The school sets progress targets for all pupils based on age and prior attainment + challenge.
We always have high expectations and want each and every child to maximise their life opportunities, we understand that the very best progress is only achieved when all work collaboratively. The child, their family and any professionals working with them will identify the most important next steps, then plan and support the child to achieve.
Priorities include developing:
- Effective and motivated communicators. (Total Communication approach)
- Independent young people (Personally, Socially, Emotionally)
- Confident, engaged young people who take enjoyment from their achievements
