Assessment at Henry Tyndale
At Henry Tyndale the learner is at the core for assessing progress. Our curriculum is broad and balanced meeting individual needs of our students. The curriculum, alongside specialist teaching approaches, provides consistency throughout the school. Therefore we have adapted and created assessment systems which accurately and meaningfully allow us to support the progress of our pupils.
Our Assessment systems support to:
These are set standards for areas in PMLD, PECS, TEACCH which teaching and learning is guided by.
At Henry Tyndale all students have a personal online journey. The learning journey captures achievements which develop into a record of photos, videos observations and or comments and link to assessment frameworks for curriculum pathways. The learning journeys show progress over time from when the student started at Henry Tyndale to the point they leave. These are regularly shared with parents to celebrate progress and show impact of teaching and learning.
Termly Progress Meetings
Parental input and pupil views on progress and meeting needs
Parents are an integra part of measuring individual progress. We request, record and analyse parental views on their child’s progress. Our aim is for all parents to be happy with progress made and we ask this specifically in an Annual Review and take additional comments. We also seek parental views through regular questionnaires and other means during the school year. Pupil views are also important part of our EHCP process. Where appropriate students join parts of the review, provide feedback and are an integral part of their progress and aspirations.
