Assessment, Attainment and Progress

Assessment of new pupils

All new pupils are baselined after a 6 week bespoke induction and assessment window. A Personalised Learning Plan (PLP) is created which incorporates all pertinent information and priority targets. Pupils enter school with differing experiences and some pupils have not attended any pre-school settings. A range of school professionals and healthcare professionals work with the pupil to develop a personalized approach. All progress made through our holistic curriculum is shared on a Pupil Assessment Profile (PAP).

Data shows that our intake has become more complex over the past 3 years. Evaluation of our assessment system demonstrated a need for a more holistic approach to ensure we accurately assessed and monitor our complex pupils.

Our assessment portfolio is being adapted to include assessments which inform and track very small steps in progress across a wider, more holistic model such as Quest for Learning and The Engagement Profile. For further information please read Assessment at the Loyne Specialist School.

Intervention

Individual pupil assessments on B Squared are completed twice a year.  Class teachers meet with assessment leads and discuss progress towards PLO targets at least once a term.  Where a pupil is not on track to make expected progress it is considered if and which intervention should be used.  These may include being focused teaching within class or accessing a more bespoke intervention.  Pupil participation in interventions are recorded and evaluated on the school’s provision map.  It may be that the assessment tool used is not appropriate to capture small steps progress in which case an alternative and more purposeful tool will be used e.g. Quest for Learning.  All assessment information relating to a pupil is recorded on their Personalised Assessment profiles and in their Key Information File.

Assessment information relating to groups of pupils

Pupils with EAL/CLA or who access pupil premium funding are not compared against pupils who are not, as it is not meaningful or relevant to do so. Rather pupil progress is tracked individually for these pupils and interventions identified as appropriate.
