How are the needs of children identified?
To identify the needs of our students all sources of information are used:
- Primary School information
- Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 data
- parent comments
- review data
- key assessment results
- teacher observation
- teaching assistant observation
- all students are assessed on entry using the following screening tests:
- reading test
- numeracy test
Note: Some students will trigger further assessments if their reading score is significantly below that expected of their age.
Those students who have had intervention in Years 7, 8 and 9 are retested and assessed at the end of the intervention period. When all assessments and information gathering are complete a decision will be made regarding next steps. Those students identified as having additional needs will be offered appropriate interventions.
