How will both you and I know how my child is doing and how will the school help me to support my child’s learning?

At Gilded Hollins we monitor the individual progress of all children closely by having termly meetings with staff to evaluate progress and attainment as well as setting further support for those children not making steady progress.

Those children identified as having SEND are monitored closely by the SENCO to ensure that any interventions are having an impact on learning and so ascertain the effectiveness of our provision.

On some occasions, more formal assessments may be carried out to ascertain how much progress has been made and to inform the next steps in planning for your child. (Such assessments may include reading or spelling age assessments, Sounds-write assessments or maths assessments). Specialist teams linked to the Local Authority may be called upon to carry out these assessments. Your child’s class teacher will explain any assessments they have used with your child.

Parents can work with school to support their child’s learning by:


  • reading at home regularly – listening to your child and reading to them
  • supporting any additional activities that are sent home, either by school or other agencies
  • sharing information about your child’s strengths and areas for development
  • attending any parents information evenings or meetings that are held in school
  • being positive with your child and recognizing the small steps of progress they make
