Assessment of progress at MacIntyre School
At MacIntyre School we aim to give each student the richest and most appropriate education. It is very important to us to ensure each student is assessed accurately and to know exactly where they are in their learning at any given time. This enables us to develop targeted strategies and learning programmes so they can achieve the best outcomes possible.
Every student that attends MacIntyre School has a digital individual Assessment Book that records and tracks all their targets including ILP targets (Individual Learning Plan), curriculum targets from B-squared and, where appropriate, ASDAN targets. In order to ensure that all our students are consistently showing good levels of achievement a range of tools is used to effectively measure progress against the personal curricular aims and objectives of each student. This approach enables us to ensure each child and young person has the best opportunity to achieve beyond expectations.
All students who have an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) or a Statement of Special Educational Needs must, by law, have an Annual Review. Every internal and external specialist that works with the student (Social Workers, Speech and Language Therapist, Occupational Therapist, Music Therapist, etc.) provides a report and input to the review as appropriate. The review highlights the achievements made during the year by the child and this forms the basis of the projection of the next year’s curricular aims and objectives.
