Assessment and Progress
Assessment across Broomfield
Every pupil’s progress in Broomfield is measured and recorded on their own learning journey. The learning journeys vary slightly according to which curriculum they access but do work on the same principle of adding points showing increasing progress. The learning journeys are updated regularly and pupil progress analysed during assessment week once a term, middle leaders and senior leaders quality assure. Pupils are assessed against each academic learning journey outcome as to whether they are emerging, developing or secure.
The academic learning journeys can be cross referenced to former P levels and age related expectations used for the new National Curriculum pupil’s progress towards their end of key stage targets. Progress is monitored by the leadership team. This is based on and compared with school level data and currently that of other special schools that we moderate with. Progress meetings take place every term between teachers and the extended leadership team to discuss individual pupil progress, any pupils highlighted as not on track may then be targeted for additional support.
Every pupil has a file on Evidence for Learning where evidence of progress is logged on their learning journey. Evidence of progress is moderated by teaching staff at least once per half term then cross moderated by the leadership team and with other special schools 3 times a year. This evidence may be a video, a photo or a photo of a piece of work.
