Primary Special Needs - Working with P-Scales

Description

Teaching staff and a SENCO at Kingston Park Primary School, in Newcastle, show how a new system of measuring attainment, called P-Scales, works.

It's likely that from 2007 teachers working with special needs pupils will need a working knowledge of the new system.

Imported from special schools to mainstream schools, the system allows a far more detailed analysis of levels of attainment for pupils working below national curriculum level one.

Kingston Park has decided to bring in the system early and talk frankly about how it works in a mainstream school, focusing on a Year Two pupil called Kamelia.

Teachers describe how P-Scales work alongside IEPs, and give helpful hints about how to get the best from working with the new system.
