All students are regularly assessed in class and our Data Entry Points are the culmination of each terms data gathering. This is intensively monitored at all levels of the academy by teaching staff, Heads of Departments, the Senior Leadership Team and Local Governing Body members to ensure all students are on track to make progress. The academy sets ambition targets for all learners and aim for all to make 4 levels of progress rather than the national expectation of 3 levels.
Where we have a concern we work on an ‘assess, plan, do, review’ model in line with the Code of Practice that incorporates extra academy based and/or specialist intervention and parent liaison to get students back on track
For students with SEND, the Inclusion Team, in liaison with class teachers and subject Heads of Departments complete termly reviews linked to the interventions in place to assess impact and to plan next steps. These reviews monitor academic and behaviour for learning targets and are shared with students and parents/carers where necessary.
For our students with Statements of SEN or EHC Plans the Inclusion Team conduct termly and annual reviews in line with the principles of person centred planning. These meetings seek to involve all those who play a part in the students’ progress to discuss current progress and next steps.
