    Hi,

    Ofsted ask for 3yr data for SEN. What data do you have ready for them?
    Has anyone had an Ofsted recently? What sort of things did they ask for?

    Cheers

  5. We have recently had an inspection. The main data focus was on how we were progressing against the national data set from the progression guidance 2010-11. We also have a behaviour database and a database on how each pupil has shown any improvement with difficulties within the triad of impairment ( We are an ASD school) We cross ref the three databases to find any patterns to look to support our pupils and summarise this in an end of year analysis report. This is only our second year of using this format but the inspection team were impressed. We are still fine tuning it and it will improve with the more historical data we will collate.

  7. Hi Mike,
    We have a data base that links to our assessment folders which includes termly levels for each pupil. This informs our yearly analysis report. In this we have a section that looks at the progress of our year 6 pupils and the progress they have made across the key stage in line with the national data.
    The second is a behaviour database that we use to inform half termly behaviour meetings. This tool has been really useful as we have noted patterns that would sometimes go unnoticed resulting in a decrease in serious and moderate incidents by 38% compared to last year. Our admin staff enter the data from incident sheets completed by all staff. Particular pupils,lessons, times of the day and areas get automatically flagged also some staff but that can help for prof development and closer monitoring of some staff. Im sorry I dont have the name of the company that do this but I can forward it to you. The cost is about £800 and the guy does a two hour training for staff involved, it is excellent value for what you get.
    The third is an autism specific database which gives a score for any progress made during the year within the triad of impairment. This is informed by a yearly questionnaire which is really something where class teams can sit down and discuss any progress and think about what can be done to help the pupils. We this as we thought that pupils who make very little academic progress but make good social and emotional progress dont often get any recognition for what they have achieved.
    Hops some help,
    Ciaan
