12.How is the effectiveness of provision made for children with SEND evaluated?


Monitoring progress is an integral part of teaching and learning within Thurcroft Junior Academy. Parents/carers, pupils and staff are involved in reviewing the impact of support for students with SEND. Following the ‘assess, plan, do, review’ model we ensure that parents/carers and pupils are involved in each step. In order to determine the effectiveness of provision expectations of how the support, which is additional to or different from that available to other pupils, will impact on progress to agreed outcomes and a baseline is recorded which can then be used to compare the impact of support.

Half-termly rigorous analysis of monitoring data allows for timely review and amendment of SEND support. Parents/carers, pupils, Teaching Staff, Middle Leaders and the Academy’s Leadership, along with the SENDCO and the Inclusion team, regularly contribute to the evaluation of this support and its effectiveness.
