How will I know how well my child is doing?

Every pupil has a Learning Journey which  documents their learning, progress and reflections through out the year.  Parents/carers will be invited into class during the autumn term to share and talk to their child about their learning skills and achievements. Following this, there will be parent consultations for parents/carers to speak to the class teacher  and discuss how their child has settled in. There will also be further opportunities for family learning sessions in spring and summer terms and a parent consultaion in spring term. Over a year, a pupil's learning journey builds to be a comprehensive journal of progress, targets, next steps, achievemnts and reflections which forms the end of year report.

We believe that your child’s education should be a partnership between parents/carers and teachers, therefore we aim to keep communication channels open and communicate regularly, especially if your child has complex needs.

Your child may have an Individualised Plan for their learning or an Individualised Behaviour Plan (IBP) in place. Therefore the targets set are SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Time-scaled) targets which are matched to your child's needs with the expectation that your child will achieve the target by the time it is reviewed. If your child has complex SEND, they will likely have an EHCP (Education Health Care Plan) which means that a formal Annual Review will take place to discuss your child’s progress and a report will be written. 

We also offer an open door policy, where you are welcome any time to make an appointment to meet with either the class teacher or SENDCo and discuss how your child is getting on.
