Monitoring SEND pupils' progress
Pupils are assessed regularly using teacher marking, observations and questioning as well as more formal assessments such as curriculum tests and standardised test. In Birmingham we also have access to the Birmingham Language and Literacy and Maths toolkits (creating Individual Target Plans or ITPs) which support assessment when a child or young person is making small steps of progress.
All children’s progress, including those children or young people with special educational need, is tracked using the school’s assessment tracking system. In addition to this, pupils who benefit from an Individual Target Plan (ITP) are also tracked on an ITP tracker. This helps the school to monitor how well interventions are working. The progress each child is making is discussed at pupil progress meetings with the class teacher, a member of the Senior Leadership Team and SENDCo.
