Welcome to the Autumn Term!

Marsh Infant and Nursery School

How does the school know if my child needs extra help?

Each term your child’s teacher along with the support of the SENDCO and Head Teacher will monitor and check on your child’s progress at a pupil progress meeting.  Pupil progress meetings happen three times a year and are built into the overall school approach of monitoring the progress and development of all pupils.  Pupil progress meetings will normally reveal whether your child has any gaps in their learning and understanding and whether they need any extra support to help them make the best possible progress.  A child can be making less than expected progress if:


- Their progress is significantly slower than that of their peers

- They fail to match or better their previous rate of progress

- They fail to close the attainment gap with their peers


This can also include progress in areas other than attainment – for example around progress with wider development or social needs.
