We hope there will be evidence of progress at home, as well as in school, as skills learned are generalised!
Teachers assess progress through schemes of work and curriculum areas (using the Equals and National Curriculum levels). Notes are taken when pupils are supported in mainstream classes. We use them to assess whether more sessions, different sessions, etc. are indicated. Certificates of achievement are awarded to pupils at regular assemblies throughout the year. All are eligible, however small the step mastered. Parents/carers will receive a thorough progress report once a year at the Annual Review and are welcome to discuss progress with the class teacher.
Also available is an annual photo profile of their child's achievements in school. This includes pieces of work or photos chosen and commented on by the child or his/her teacher.
Individual Education Plans are written for each pupil with targets in each of the core curriculum areas. It will outline the priority areas and targets each child is expected to achieve during the forthcoming year. Your child's plan will be discussed with you once a term and at the Annual Review.
