SEND IEP template/Pupil Learning Passport

SEND IEP template/Pupil Learning Passport

The file included is an updated/new IEP template which is renamed ‘Pupil Learning Passport’. It is used successfully in conjunction with face-to-face parental meetings once per term. We allocated 20-25 minutes each for the Autumn term parental meetings and 10-15 minutes each for the Spring and Summer term meetings, although longer may be needed depending on the nature of the outcomes, progress made as well as the individual circumstances surrounding the pupil . Pupil Learning Passports (PLPs) can be used for SEND, LAC and disadvantaged pupils. What does it do? Outlines personal details and SEND category/categories Links to SEND ranges Outlines the pupil’s strengths, achievements and interests ( pupil discussions are held once a year prior to the first parental meeting). Outlines external agencies involved Outlines background information (status, medical and external agencies) Incorporates pupil voice - ‘barriers to learning’ and ‘I learn best when’ States outcomes and learning targets (Autumn, Spring and Summer) Outlines provision (intervention, resources, strategies and what I can do at home to help Tracks attainment and progress data Reviews outcomes Incorporates parent views Includes details of transition Why is it more effective? One document that is updated each term for one year and the follows the pupil into future year groups One document that tracks pupil progress for their whole school career from Reception to Y6, or whenever they join your school In-line with the SEND Code of Practice 2015, incorporating parent and pupil voice and views Sections are written in conjunction with the pupil It combines IEPs and Pupil Passports removing the need for two separate documents Links directly to SEND Provision Map Saves teachers time having ‘tick box’ options in various sections All relevant information needed for referrals is in one place All relevant information in one place to ensure all staff involved with the child is aware of provision, needs, resources and strategies Acts as a transition document (class to class/teacher to teacher, across Key stages and to new schools) Overall, it replaces a lot of singular documents and creates one meaningful and multi-purpose document for SEND pupils.

Macbeth, Act 1 (Adapted) and activities

Macbeth, Act 1 (Adapted) and activities

Macbeth - A specially adapted version of Macbeth - Act 1 and activities. I wanted to adapt Macbeth so that Special Ed students could study - and enjoy the play. (I'm on a quest to get the classics into special ed classrooms). I have kept the plot, character motivation, scenes etc - and even a bit of rhyme, but it is in simplified language. Because of this, the resource is also ideal for ANY student studying the play as it simplifies the plot so they can understand what's happening and compare it with the difficult to read Elizabethan original. It will be easier for them to grasp what happens in each scene then as the language is always tricky for anyone reading the play. It's also suitable for adult literacy classes and ESOL classes. This is a complete unit of study of Act 1. (The rest of the acts will follow soon). This resource includes - * 27 power point slides (illustrated) with the adapted text of Macbeth. * 35 short answer question quiz, covering all 7 scenes of act 1 (multiple choice, true/false, missing word). * Answer sheet. * Class discussion sheet - Consequence and conscience, further discussion questions, highlighting activity. * Activity sheet - Write a letter. * Activity sheet - Draw a poster. * Handout - PDF of presentation slides to print off (I print it off in grey scale). * Role play activity. * Peer performance record sheet. * Self evaluation sheet. * Handout - recap of Act 1 - Some questions to think about.
