Top resources to write helpful reports and reflect upon the achievements of students with SEN

Even if you have regular parent-teacher communication, it's still important to find the time to share students' achievements at the end of the academic year. In fact, there's no better way to celebrate success and boost self-esteem among your pupils.

That's why we’ve gathered together some of the very best SEN-friendly resources designed to help both you and your class look back on and recognise individual contributions from the past year.

Report-writing support

Report writing can be a daunting and time-consuming process, but having the right tools can make the process a little easier. This adaptable end-of-year report example* is packed full of ways to articulate progress in different subjects, while this extensive comment bank offers a range of helpful behaviour-focused phrases.

For students who are being assessed using P-scales, this comprehensive grid provides clear descriptions of each of the literacy levels to help you to succinctly phrase feedback sentences.

Student reflection activities

It is equally important for pupils to think about their own achievements and the ways that they can improve in the future - and they can have some fun with this! For example, why not try this artistic maths reflection task*? Pupils can draw, colour and write creatively about their level of confidence in various maths topics on a structured sheet that can later be shared with parents.

Alternatively, work with learners to record memories of the last year with this editable booklet or reflection workbook*, designed to celebrate achievements and create a keepsake to send home.
