How we evaluate the effectiveness of SEN Provision

We continuously ensure the provision has a positive impact on the outcomes for all of our children/young people. We do this in a variety of ways, including:

  • Robust evaluation of policy and practice

  • Book scrutinies

  • SENCO/SLT/Governor monitoring – the SENCO meets regularly with the SEN governor

  • Learning walks

  • Performance management


During book scrutinies, the SENCO looks at work provided for children with SEN and how it compares to that of their peers. The types of tasks are looked at as well as how well they have achieved.  For example, a difficulty in reading does not mean a child should be given a simplified task in Science if their scientific knowledge is at age-related expectations. The task should be adapted to support that child appropriately.


The SEN governor meets with the SENCO to discuss Special Educational Needs within the school termly and has a vast knowledge of SEND to help develop expertise in the area of SEN.
