Attainment and progress
At St. Hugh’s, we believe that every student is unique and deserves an education tailored to their individual needs. To ensure that our students receive the support they require, we have developed a comprehensive assessment system that focuses on tracking progress and attainment both in respect of each student’s curriculum pathway and also the needs identified within their EHCP. Our staff use a range of assessment tools and strategies to gather ongoing detailed information about each student’s strengths, challenges, and progress . By utilizing this data, we can create personalized learning plans that address specific needs, set realistic targets, and monitor progress effectively. We also maintain close communication with parents and carers, involving them in the assessment process and providing regular updates on their child’s progress. Through our robust assessment framework, we strive to foster a positive and inclusive learning environment that empowers our students to reach their full potential.
