Progress and Data
Progress and Data responds to the current national debate about what progress children with special educational needs can be expected to make and how data can be collected and evaluated, raising our aspirations and improving outcomes.
The Progression Guidance has been developed by the National Strategies and the DCSF as part of the commitment in the Children's Plan 2007 to provide better data for schools on how well learners with special educational needs, learning difficulties and disabilities (SEN/LDD) are progressing.
In addition to the materials below, RAISEonline (Reporting and Analysis for Improvement through School Self-Evaluation) is being improved to support the analysis of data for pupils with SEN/LDD who are working below age-related expectations. In 2008 special schools were included for the first time into RAISEonline.
As it develops, more special schools will benefit from its analytical capacity and all schools will have access to improved data on the progress of these learners. More information can be found from the National Strategies section on the DCSFs website. Here you can download numerous publications on Progression Guidance. But we need your input!
Only by better understanding the issues and concerns that leaders at the 'sharp end' have with how children with SEN are progressing, how are they being measured (if at all), what data is being collected and evaluated, and how their outcomes can be improved - only then can we really begin to build a picture that tells a multitude of stories.
There is a wealth of information out there, so if you have some information that you would like us to publish that could be shared with other leaders and schools, then please send this to us.
