Special educational needs 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.

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.

Phonics Alphabet Folder Activity Special NeedsQuick View

Phonics Alphabet Folder Activity Special Needs

Folder activities are easy to make, store and reset for other students throughout the day. They are great for working on basic matching, letter recognition and initial sound skills in your special needs or early years classroom. This pack includes the printables and instructions to make 24 file folders for working on the letters of the alphabet. I love using file folders to give students extra practice for new skills as they are learning them with me first and then again during independent work to practice mastered skills. Task 1: Match letters to letters- I like to reinforce the sound these letters make as my students are completing this task. Task 2: Match pictures to pictures- initial sound with a specific letter. I like to use this as an opportunity to teach vocabulary as well as initial sounds. Instruction on how to make these folder activities are included in the PDF. You will need some velcro loops and hooks, square cut folders and laminating pouches. Alternatively, instead of creating individual folders for every letter, you can put all the activities in a binder. Thanks for looking :)

This unit lesson will lessen the difficulty students with special needs have learning about and understanding history.

The goals and objectives provide teachers with an outline of this approach. The suggested activities, starting with each student investigating the history of someone in his/her family which will be displayed and presented by the student to the class. This will provide a foundation from which to explore historical events by having each student identify any event in the local, state, national, or world history their relative might have witnessed or with which s/he was involved.
