Reviewing the effectiveness of provision
At Alvaston Junior Academy, we evaluate the effectiveness of SEN provision to ensure that pupils receive the best support to meet their needs and as part of the Graduated Approach of Assess, Plan, Do and Review. We currently evaluate the effectiveness of SEN across the four broad areas of SEN provision in the following ways:
Communication and interaction (SLCN, ASC)
We use the Speech and Language therapist to identify a programme to be delivered in school, this is reviewed and assessed termly.
Cognition and learning (MLD, PMLD, SLD, SpLD)
We use the assessment data provided by teaching and support staff to assess before and after any intervention to evaluate the impact of provision using our whole school provision map to guide.
Social, Emotional and Health Difficulties
We use the Boxall Profiles to evaluate the impact of provision. We also use Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire to help us to assess before and after any intervention to evaluate the impact of provision. We can also assess through observations of pupils throughout the school day over a period of time.
Sensory and/or Physical Difficulties
We are guided by occupational health teams and visual aid support teachers to support in specific programmes for children.
We continuously ensure the provision has a positive impact on the outcomes for all of our children/young people. We do this in a variety of ways, including:
- Robust evaluation of policy and practice
- Peer reviews from the DERBY SEND TEAM
- Book scrutinies
- SENCO monitoring
- Learning walks
- Performance management
- Questionnaires and feedback from parents
