Monitoring progress is an integral part of teaching and leadership within Woodlands Primary Academy. Parents/carers, pupils and staff are involved in reviewing the impact of interventions for learners with SEND. We follow the ‘assess, plan, do, review’ model and ensure that parents/carers and children are involved in each step. Before any additional provision is selected to help a child, the SENCO, Teacher, parent/carer and learner, agree what they expect to be different following this intervention. A baseline will also be recorded, which can be used to compare the impact of the provision.
Children, Parents/carers and their Teaching and Support Staff will be directly involved in reviewing progress. This review can be built in to the intervention itself, or it can be a formal meeting held at least once a term, where we all discuss progress and next steps. If a learner has an Education Health and Care Plan (EHC plan,) the same termly review conversations take place, but the EHC plan will also be formally reviewed annually.
The SENCO collates the impact data of interventions, to ensure that we are only using interventions that work. Intervention data is shared with the Lynn Grove cluster so all SENCOs in our cluster are able to select high quality provision.
Progress data of all learners is collated by the whole school and monitored by Teachers, Senior Leaders and Governors. We are also part of the Lynn Grove cluster moderation group so can ensure that our judgements stand up to scrutiny. Our school and cluster data is also monitored by the local authority and Ofsted.
