A really useful summary thank you.
Many thanks for your kind comment. This diagram has been very favourably received and received many Retweets on Twitter. It seems as if it is in use already.
This is very helpful, would you mind if I use it?
Very happy for you to use. Hope it does what you need. Perhaps you'd leave a longer comment at some stage? Thanks.
Thank you for sharing this resource Chris. I will be circulating this diagram with our teaching staff. It is so important that we know our students, not the ones we used to have, or the ones we would like to have, but the students we have in front of us right now. Having a son who has just been statemented makes me even more passionate to ensure that every child can access the curriculum.
You are welcome Sarah. I agree that there is a need to look very closely at the children as they are. You have a very clear insight into the journey that a child takes to getting a statement. My concern is that teachers will not document sufficiently well, in the earlier stages, so that the child is disadvantaged as much by a poor internal record, as by their own needs.
Hi Chris, this is really brilliant. Is there any chance of you sending me a bigger version of it. I would love to share this with my school staff.
Hi Sophie. If you send me an email address, I can try to send a jpeg copy, or you could try a screen capture and print approach. I'd be very interested to know what your staff think about it.
HI Chris. This is really useful for me as a new SENCDO in a school where there are no procedures in place. The original document was written in 2014? Would you suggest there are any amendments now in 2020? Many thanks
In general terms the categories are correct and the features also. If there are no processes, the crib sheet would provide a sound basis for staff to draw children to your attention having observation evidence to back up their concerns.
Try it and see. The box in the middle is a guide to good practice. Teachers should be spotting and recording potential issues. It'll save time later, as any external professional will want a background case study to offer a start point for their own investigation.
Best wishes, Chris Chivers
