    I've seen these used in secondary, but does anyone have any success stories of using them instead of IEPs for primary children?

    To ge honest my experience of the IEP format in any context has been found seriously wanting so if you think you have a format which you can adapt to a Primary setting then worth a trial I think .

    I am not sure what exactly you mean by pupil passports. Our IEP template has targets on one side with a record keeping spot for when they are worked on. Then on the reverse we have what we call a 'passport' or things a pupil likes/dislikes/finds relaxing/finds stressful/is good at/needs support with/how they react to difficulties - if they are able we get the pupil themselves to fill this side out.

    It is by no means perfect but it seems to work quite we1l for us (primary).

    I think the Optimus guy Gareth ? has written about student passports and his practice . Maybe worth a look for those unfamiliar with the idea ?

    Yup having looked at his template that is exactly what we have on the reverse side of ours.
