    This results in almost all children making expected progress and the large majority of children making rapid progress

    At the end of the Spring term 96% made expected progress or above and 80% made rapid progress.

    66% of children were working within age related expectations, compared to 3% on entry.

    25% were working below age related compared to 69% on entry; and 5% working well below, compared to 28% on entry.

    Every child takes part in Forest School each fortnight where they develop self-regulation; self-confidence; co-operation; communication; problem-solving skills; and an understanding of and respect for nature and the environment.

    Staff know their key group very well and children are regularly assessed so that Special Educational Needs & Disabilities are identified as early as possible. Parents are involved at the earliest opportunity, so that they are fully involved in decisions and support can be put into place.

    This results in almost all children with SEND making expected progress and the large majority of children making accelerated progress.
