Our starting point

  • Acquisition of the Learning Platform

  • Finding a ‘need’

  • Introduction + trial in ICT lessons

  • Initial meeting with the focus on the VLE and delivering appropriate resources

  • Discussions between Head of ICT and SENCO

  • Rapid change of focus

  • Using the Learning Platform to access a wealth of information to inform decision-making


Development

Focus: how could using ICT and the Learning Platform improve the monitoring of students on the SEN register within our school?

  • Identify areas in which the current system in place could be improved and made more efficient

  • Development of an SEN information spreadsheet

  • Creation of a dedicated Interest Space

  • On-going discussions – review, evaluation, modification

  • Involvement of all SEN staff


Our system

  • Easy access to information through the Student Dashboard. Use of hyperlinks on the spreadsheet.

  • Initial scanning of relevant documentation

  • Creation of a well–organised Document Library as a depository.

  • Use of the Discussion board to share and collate information on students.


Our system

  • Replacement of traditional IEP system with the Learning Platform facility to create and monitor targets

  • On-going discussions – review, evaluation, modification

  • Involvement of all SEN staff

  • Staff training

  • Time to work together

  • A “one-stop system” at your fingertips!
