About the Webinar

Changes to assessment levels have meant that schools are struggling to accurately assess children with special educational needs and disability (SEND). There is a wealth of assessments available and it can be difficult to know which ones are best suited to your school.

This webinar is for SENCOs, teachers, SEN teaching assistants and head teachers. It will provide a guide to a variety of assessments which can be used to assess children with SEND covering cost implications, resource requirements and staffing needs. It will also assess how effective each intervention is and what the results can be used for.

  • Review assessments in key areas such as language, reading, literacy and maths

  • Learn what each assessment involves and the outcomes it provides

Effective Assessment Strategies for SEND pupils

A clear overview of assessment strategies for SEND students. The Boxall profiling strategy looks especially effective for some of the most vulnerable in the school. Clear emphasis on using what is right for YOUR school. OFSTED will focus on this. A clear reminder to make sure that any test chosen is cost effective. Important to focus on tracking and be able to justify the particular tests chosen. Useful overview of tests available and sound advice. An excellent practical webinar.
