Assessment

At Endeavour Academy we set our young people challenging yet achievable outcomes and track their progress so that we can set next steps of learning.

Endeavour Academy introduced a new assessment strategy in September 2018 in response to The Rochford review. This ensures we can capture all types of progress made by our pupils across all curriculum areas - Wellbeing, Social Skills, Independence and Knowledge, Skills and Understanding.

To set targets we work as a multi-professional group which includes: parents, teachers, therapist, social workers,carers, LD CAHMS and other relevant health professionals. We do this via:

  • Person Centred Plans
  • Key stage EHCP outcomes
  • Annual EHCP outcomes
  • Learning Intentions - set on a termly basis

To track progress we are currently using:

  • MAPP 2 (EQUALS)
  • PECS phases
  • Endeavour Academy Learning Intentions
  • Personal Behaviour Support Plans
  • Occupational Therapy specific assessments and reports
  • Speech and Language Therapy specific assessments and reports
  • Functional analysis

We use evidence of young people's progress throughout the Academy and enrichment activities to contribute towards their ASDAN, Art Awards, AQA unit scheme and Duke of Edinburgh accreditation.
