Skilled staff make ongoing observations of learning which then contribute to the planning of students next steps. All observations are recorded on Evidence for Learning and are linked to our curriculum framework so that we can track progress according to the Equals frameworks in the following areas:

My Communication and Language

My Personal Social and Emotional Development

My Physical Development

We use the following cycle to inform our practice:

Look ---> Listen ---> Note ---> Plan --->Deliver

This continuous assessment cycle means that engaging and stimulating activities are constantly being developed in order to challenge our learners.

We aim to develop independence and fluency in our learners to ensure they are confident individuals who are prepared for the world around them.  We measure levels of independence in each area of learning using the following scale:

This ensures learners are well prepared for the next pathway.
