					      The Progression Guidance

The guidance has been developed by the
National Strategies and DCSF as part of
the commitment in the Children’s Plan
(2007) to provide better data for schools
on how well learners with SEN/LDD are
   The Progression Guidance…..
• provides data to support schools, SIPs,
  and National Challenge Advisers in
  determining what is good progress for
  pupils with SEN/ LDD;

• supports schools in setting stretching
  targets to ensure high expectations of
  pupil progress.
    Who is the intended audience?

•   Teachers
•   Leadership teams
•   Governors
•   LA Officers, SIPs, NCAs
•   Ofsted inspection teams
       The guidance includes
• A set of key principles which underpin
  the use of data on the attainment and
  progress of learners with SEN/LDD.
• A wide range of historic National
  Curriculum attainment and progression
• An explanation of the different data
  sets and how to interpret them.

  The key principles
  • High expectations are key     Section 4:
    to securing good progress.
  • Accurate assessment is        Data sets appendices including:
     essential to securing and    Point scores and conversion tables
     measuring pupil progress.
  • Age and prior attainment      Matrices
    are the starting points for   Line graphs and tables
    developing expectations of
     pupil progress.              Bar charts and tables

The full data sets can be downloaded from
the National Strategies area of the
Standards Site:

Data Set 1     00646-2009DWO-EN-01
Data Set 2     00647-2009DWO-EN-01
Data Set 3     00648-2009DWO-EN-01
         P Scale Point score

This will enable teachers to differentiate
attainment within the P levels using a
nationally agreed numerical value.

In due course ,SEN/LDD data will be
included in RAISEonline.

              Target setting

Targets should be:

• based on age and prior attainment as the
  starting point – not category of need. ‘Labels’
  e.g. MLD, BESD, ASD, Down Syndrome should
  not be seen as barriers to achievement.

• based on the performance of the highest
  performing learners i.e. in the upper quartile.
        Accurate assessment
It is more challenging to make accurate
and reliable judgements for learners with
SEN/LDD, particularly at the lower P

QCA have updated their P Scale guidance
which now includes materials for English,
mathematics and science at P levels 1-3.
            Key messages
• When current data was analysed it
  supported the expectation that the
  majority of learners will make 2 levels
  of progress including those working at
  P levels.

• For children working below P3 2 sub
  levels constitutes 2 levels.
