A useful document to monitor a child’s challenging behaviours in order to identify the nature and potential trigger times, actions etc. This can be used by SENCos/Inclusion Managers as evidence for EHCP applications.

ABC behaviour monitoring card

(0)
A double sided sheet that can be used to identify and monitor individual behaviour issues using the Antecedent/Behaviour/Consequence system. The 1-6 boxes represent each half term and can be circled so that the incidents can be easily grouped into half termly periods.
SEND Individual Provision Map

SEND Individual Provision Map

(0)
An Individual Pupil Provision Map to monitor interventions for SEND pupils. Interventions and assessments can be edited to personalise for individual school needs. The key feature of this IPM is that it is an ‘at a glance’ snapshot of the provision that a pupil is receiving for each term of an academic year. It is a very useful monitoring tool and can form part of a SEND child’s paperwork to share with parents, carers and external professionals. In our school, this provision map works alongside a Support Plan and a One Page Profile (see other listings) to form a child’s One Plan paperwork.

SEND Support Plan/IEP/Pupil Target Plan

(0)
A clear, easy to use template for SEND pupil Support Plans/IEPs/Target Plans. Annotated headings provide support for adults writing the plans. SMART targets are clearly linked to long term outcomes to ensure that plans incorporate person centred planning practices. Text in red is exemplar and should be personalised or deleted.
PPA Record of Discussion template

PPA Record of Discussion template

(0)
A simple, single page template to make note of team discussions during PPA sessions. In our school, our LSAs join teachers for part of their weekly PPA time and I have found this a useful tool to monitor how this time is being used and the impact it has on planning and preparation to meet pupils’ needs. Effective dialogue between teachers and LSAs during PPA time allows for joint working and clear understanding between all professionals working with children within the classroom. Using this template also means that any staff who are absent from discussions can receive a copy of the notes so that they too have an understanding of what is happening in the week ahead.
Pupil Observation form

(0)

Evidence of impact overview to support EHCP Needs Assessment

(0)
This grid shows the impact of interventions for an individual pupil and can be used to make the provision and impact explicit for EHCP Needs Assessment applications. This has been a key feature in getting some of our applications approved for assessment. The table has been completed with examples for information only.
Pupil Concern Form (SEND)
tarafinney

Pupil Concern Form (SEND)

(0)
A form that SENCOs/Inclusion Managers can use in school for teachers to complete and return, with supporting evidence, to raise concerns about potential SEND in pupils. This is aligned with the SEND Code of Practice which states that “Every school is required to identify and address the SEN of the pupils that they support…” (6.2). It also highlights key data groups so that this information can be used to help identify provision and support.
