SEN/vulnerable pupils case studies for Ofsted

Discussion in 'Special educational needs' started by devilinthedetails, Mar 20, 2012.

  1. <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tr><td class="post">Hi,

    Just wondering if anyone can help. I'm the SENCo of a primary school and the Ofsted phone call is expected anytime now. I've been asked to put together case studies of children on the SEN register who also identify as being 'vulnerable'. I really don't know where to start with this. Aside from presenting data and tracking to Ofsted, does anyone have any idea what these case studies should consist of?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!

    We've added notes to our tracking sheets - just a narrative rather than a fixed format, as they are so particular to each child. So for example if a child has SEN and other compicated family issues - parent in prison/looked after/under CP/moved schools a lot/sibling with SEN ... whatever, then that has been attached.
  3. This is a good idea, thank you.
  4. Hi,
    At our secondary school we first put together a list of our top 20 students with SEN - in terms of the gains they were making in reading / spelling ages and levels - and included their IEPs (which are a bit more like profiles rather than step-by-step plans, as often seen in Primary). We also had attendance info to back it up - to show their engagement with school had increased.
    We then also included examples & notes on students who weren't making progress, why this was and what we were doing about it.
    This was communicated face-to-face in a meeting with an inspector, rather than simply on paper. I think this is important as misinterpretations could be made, I feel, when purely looking at numbers.
