How will I know if my child is making progress?

Your child’s progress is continually monitored by his/her class teacher and the Inclusion Lead through observation, assessment and review.


  • Your child’s progress is reviewed formally every term and a National Curriculum level, or a more sensitive assessment tool is used which shows their level in more details and will also show smaller but significant steps of progress.  The levels are called ‘P levels’
  • At the end of FS2 (Reception class) teachers use the evidence they have gathered to make judgements of each pupil’s attainment.  These judgements are shared and are published nationally
  • 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 the results published nationally.
  • Children identified as SEN will have specific targets which will be reviewed each term by the Class Teacher and the parent /carer, and where possible, in consultation with the child. The Inclusion Lead may also attend.
  • 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 Inclusion Lead will monitor the progress of all children who are involved in individual or group interventions and work with staff to plan next steps and targets for these children.

You will receive a full report of your child’s achievements at the end of each academic year.
