​Welcome to the hidden web page of the spring 2017 SEND Forum. The aim is to provide all the necessary slideshows, handouts and resources to enable delegates to deliver, share or cascade the information to colleagues back in school; indeed, a number of delegates have successfully done this with our Forum materials. Furthermore, it makes accessing resources and web links much easier, with everything stored in one place. Our copyright terms are that attending delegates are free to use the materials within their own school only. We hope you find this helpful!

The following report was published by OFSTED on 5th March 2017. In the light of our SEND Forum discussion on the DfE use of progress scores, the section titled 'Progress scores for each year group' is interesting and relevant to any school, particularly those due to be inspected. It starts on page 7 of the document. Of note is the information on page 8, stating:

'Pupils on 'P scales' or assessed at foundation for the 'expected standard' or 'early development' of the expected standard, always have negative progress scores. Those assessed at 'growing development' of the expected standard can have a positive progress score only if their prior attainment was P6 or below. The inspector training on inspecting outcomes using data for primary schools explains this. Inspectors should consult the validated inspection dashboard prior attainment chart in RAISEonline, which contains a new row showing the number of Year 6 pupils on P scales at key stage 1.'
