Answer 4

Answer 4:The class teachers and teaching assistants observe and assess your child throughout each lesson, this information along with the information gained during the planned assessments throughout the year; help the class teacher to make judgments about your child’s strengths and areas for development. This also allows them to assess your child’s progress towards the National Curriculum expectations. The school monitors very carefully the progress and attainment in Reading, Writing, and Maths as these underpins access to all areas of the curriculum and to further education and work. The class teacher discusses the attainment and progress of children in their class with the Headteacher and SENDCo at Pupil Progress Meetings each term. It is during these meetings that teachers will begin to highlight concerns about a child’s progress and attainment and will begin to identify barriers to learning. It may be suggested that the class teacher and SENDCo organise interventions to support them to catch up. This would be reviewed at the next Pupil Progress Meeting (PPM). At the next PPM, if the child has not made the expected progress following the implementation of the interventions or strategies, then the class teacher would speak with the SENCO for further advice and support. A plan of support would be put together in discussion with the parent/carer and the child or young person. This may involve further intervention or strategies, referrals to specialist agencies or the adding of the child’s name to the SEND list and creating an Additional Support Plan, or an Individual Support Plan detailing the targeted strategies and intervention attended and required. All children who are on the SEN list have an individual One Page Profile (also known as a Person Center Plan - PCP) which is created with parents, the child and staff. The Profile explains how the children wants to be supported and how the staff can support the child.
