Introduction The introduction gives an overview of the AEN Self– review Framework and further guidance on completing the document. It will be helpful to you to read through these instructions before you begin completing the document. Introduction (second tab)
Key Area 1 - Schools Context The first 2 boxes on the SEN data page will help you to complete Key Area 1 Explain the context of the school in relation to the surrounding area e.g. whether the school has a unit Hover over the red triangle in the right hand corner and a pop up will appear that explains the information you may want to include e.g. changes to staffing, structure etc
Key Area 2 – Outcomes (2a and 2b) Use your attendance data to make a judgement about whether the attendance in your school is good. The national average for primary schools is approximately 95% and 92% for secondary schools. Statements 2a and 2b are not about strategies used by your school but the actual levels and whether this is adequate Use your exclusion data to make a judgement about the levels of exclusions in your school and the impact of your strategies. Hover over this red triangle to see the values for each grade. Use the drop down button to change the value
Key area 2 - Outcomes (2c,2e,2f) Hover over the red triangle to go through the criteria to enable you to make your judgement. You may want to explain your grade choice in the additional school strategies box at the bottom of the page By clicking on a statement you can select from the school strategy boxes the strategies that your school currently employs in order to achieve each statement
Key Area 2 – Outcomes 2d Take some time to look at the SEN data page prior to completing 2d. Ask yourself the following questions about each key stage in order to analyse this data and make decisions about progress: How many SEN pupils do not make the appropriate levels of progress i.e. 2 levels at KS2 (you have this information in the table on the SEN data page) Who are these students and why did they not make progress? What is the school doing to ensure students such as these achieve greater level of progress in subsequent years? How many students are making appropriate levels of progress and what is the school doing for these students? For each key stage, how does the school data for pupils with SEN compare to Richmond data for the number of students not achieving expected levels? How does the school data for non SEN compare with the LA data and how do the two of these compare with each other i.e. does the school do as well for its SEN cohort as it does for non SEN?
Key area 2 - Outcomes (2d) Complete your judgement for 2d – be sure you can justify this with the data and with your knowledge of the students within your school
Area 2 - Outcomes Use this box to select your evidence to back up your statements Use the additional information box to add any further information you would like to include about your school Use the information you have completed for Key Area 2 to write brief statements in the main strengths and areas of development boxes. These areas for development will form your SEN/AEN action plan and some e.g.2d action points related to progress, may be reflected in the whole school development plan
Key Area 3 and 4 Continue to complete Key Area 3 and 4 using the same method as above. Key Area 3.1 – the quality of teaching Key Area 3.2 – the use of assessment to support learning Key Area 3.3 – the extent to which the curriculum meets pupils’ needs Key Area 3.4 – the effectiveness of care, guidance and support Key Area 4 – How effective are leadership and management Use the pop up that appears as you hover over the statements to help you make a judgement on your grade Select the strategies that are appropriate to your school Select the evidence that you have in your school to support your judgements Decide and write in the main strengths for the area Decide and write in the areas for development for your school – keep these brief
Summary Select ‘summary’ from the tabs at the bottom of the page. Use this page to analyse your school’s provision To find all the grades for every statement, hover over the Key Area number on the table to generate the pop up.
Summary Think about the following: Overall improvements since your last audit Any areas that have not improved or are now in need of further development Statements that are most in need of further development Statements that have greatly improved and are real areas of celebration for your school
Summary These graphs should have now populated themselves Using the information on this page and by looking back through the document, complete the school’s main strengths. These should be half a dozen or so that the school can celebrate. Select your main points for development that may be reflected in your school’s development plan. This should not be every point you have made throughout the framework but the main areas of focus.
Summary – Value for Money judgement When you click on these boxes you can select your judgement from one of the four options: ‘outstanding’, ‘good’, ‘satisfactory’, ‘inadequate’. Please see the notes for grade descriptors When you click on this box you can select your judgement from three options: ‘higher than’, ‘as’ or ‘lower than’ expected
