Assessment

We are pleased with the progress that all our pupils make and this view is shared by parents at Parents evenings and EHC meetings.   Pupils make progress in all aspects of their development and many excel in their personal and social learning.

Our assessment policy is based upon MAPP (Monitoring and Assessing Pupil Progress) framework

Progress is measured against specific targets taken from the appropriate subject AVS Level.This allows us to see how a pupil is progressing against their own personalised outcomes.

We measure against the following four areas based on the MAPP framework: prompting , fluency, maintenance and generalisation.

Pupils are assessed against each of their targets against each area of MAPP, given a score from 1-10 in each area.  This is done as a baseline score at the beginning of term and again at the end of term.  We then note the change in score between the beginning and end of the term and this difference in score is the student’s progress for the term.
