Monitoring & Management of Learning
Children’s attainment and progress are closely monitored and teachers regularly assess in a variety of formal and informal situations. This information is recorded using our tracking software to enable us to identify and address the individual needs of each child and support them in achieving their potential in learning.
For most children, this may be a simple ‘catch up’ session in a small group alongside their classmates or a little support from a teaching assistant in lessons to fill any gaps they may have in their understanding or address any misconceptions they may have.
For those with more complex learning issues, we have a number of support systems in place. If you are concerned about your child’s learning, we would suggest meeting with the class teacher to discuss your worries. The class teacher or SENCo may observe your child over several sessions and, where needed, and Individual Support Programme may be needed. Our SENCo is happy to recommend strategies and programmes to work with your child, both in school and at home.
At Danesfield, we also have a specialist teacher who is available to work with your child on a one to one basis. Although it is more usual for support to be needed in reading, writing and language development, we can also support children in areas of maths including number and problem solving. The specialist teacher does incur an additional cost of £20 per half hour session.
