Assessment at Highfield

Evidence for Learning

At Highfield we use the ‘Evidence for Learning’ software to allow us to effectively capture and record evidence of pupil’s learning and progress. Evidence will be uploaded by class staff throughout each half term and will include photographs, videos, comments and links to the pupils IEP targets and curriculum areas.

This then creates a pupil’s personal learning journey which can be shared at Parent’s Meetings and EHCP reviews.

We are shortly rolling out the ‘Evidence for Learning’ parent portal which will enable us to work closely with parents around their child’s learning and progress. We will be actively encouraging parents to engage with Evidence for Learning by sharing the photos/videos with their child, commenting on evidence uploaded by class staff and sharing their own photos/videos of their child’s progress at home.

Education Health and Care Plan

EHCP outcomes are set in their EHCP Annual review which is chaired by our SENCO Judy Gallagher.  During this meeting you will have opportunity to discuss current attainment,  progress made since the last review and look at next steps.  We try to ensure the class teacher or form tutor attends the review.

Small step targets

Teachers will set a small step target for each EHCP outcome which will be shared with you on their IEP.  If you have not seen your child’s IEP please contact school – details at the bottom of the page.


School staff who work with your child will then collect evidence which demonstrates progress through the work they are doing.  This can be a witness statement, a photo, video or a piece of work.
