Idiots guide to provision mapping!

Discussion in 'Special educational needs' started by zetec, Feb 25, 2009.

  1. I've recently become SENCO at a primary school where the head wants to introduce provision mapping. I have no experience of this and would appreciate any help, examples or can anyone recommend any useful reading!

    Many thanks

    The NUT are running an SEN conference in March and one of the speakers on Provision Mapping is Mary Hrekow - she makes it really clear. Have a look on their website.
     
  4. Any websites to see some examples for those of us who cant go to the conferences?

    I 've done tons of stuff on PM ( secondary ) and assisted some Primary colleagues too .Just be aware that even lots of the LA guidance and the Blue Hills Software do not provide success / impact criteria - u have to tackle this yourself . Be careful that your PM does not merely list what you are doing / when and with whom but provides examples of what u can see s as a result - this applies to improvements in social, emotioanal and behavioural , personal skills also. We have PM for SA students (and ones sent home which are in parent friendly format )and IEP s for SA + / Statemented .OFSTED - jan 2009 were v interested in both but only where it was obvious that improvements in attainment / achievement / deconstructed level gains for example were made obvious so progress was in your face ' . .......care , support and guidance was one of the outstanding features of the school . PM needs a really strong rationale and u need to be absolutely sure of your criteria for allocation to SA too ..like the CoP it's open to interpretation.
     
  7. Dear Minnie me
    could you please email me an example of how you showed the progress and levels gained on provision map

  8. Also think about checking out http://www.provisionmap.co.uk - this is an online tool and manages IEPs and provision maps in one go.
