  • The performance of SEND students in nationally accredited tests and examinations.
  • The analysis of student tracking and testing data for both individual pupils and cohorts.
  • The monitoring of policy and practice by the SEND Governor.
  • Comments from parents and students through parent and student voice.
  • External evaluation by Durham LA and OFSTED inspections
  • Parental involvement, and the involvement of external agencies ,  especially attendance at reviews.
  • Information collated in order to self-evaluate the success of the department, building on success and looking for areas for improvement and innovation. Target setting and continued development.
