Case Studies

vulnerable child with senProcedures, data, impact

Case Studies are essential to outline the processes implemented to support a child's learning. If you have potentially vulnerable children and need to assess the effectiveness of the care, guidance and support / teaching and curriculum adjustments for individual pupils, then case study will be a invaluable document.

Think about these questions:

  • Can we use data to tell us about the strengths and weaknesses of SEN provision?
  • Will a case study help to identify needs and gaps?
  • Can school data provide information?
  • Can a case study give valiated reasons for why a child has not made good progress?
  • Will our case study show our proactive approach?

A case study really is a snap shot into a child's learning journey over number of years. Use qualitative and quantative data.

Whether a child has degenerative condition, had a long term absence or struggles with an unstable homelife, case studies give you the opportunity to investigate further, evidence the provision, the impact the learning and address the needs of a vulnerable child.

This example was developed based on one circulating the authorities, it has a bit more detail and really shows you know you child in focus.
