About the Book

Written by an experienced practitioner who has a very current understanding of the school context, this book gives a fantastically clear, detailed and realistic strategy for primary schools with regards to raising attainment and inclusive practice. Anne Massey has provided a cogent and manageable system of provision mapping for whole-school improvement. – Pippa Whittaker, SENCO, Hans Price Academy, UK.

'This very detailed book will enable schools to develop whole school approaches which improve outcomes and ensure that they are removing barriers to participation and achievement for all children.' – Dr Peter Grimes, Principal Lecturer in Inclusive School Development, Canterbury Christ Church University, UK.

This highly practical book contains all the guidance and resources a school will need in order to implement an efficient and effective system of pupil progress tracking and evaluative Provision Mapping. It is a tried and tested system that has been shown to improve outcomes for all pupils, including those with SEN, and sits at the very heart of school self-evaluation.

Throughout this book, teachers will find achievable solutions to the problems schools face in trying to ensure that their practice results in all pupils making good progress. Anne Massey has adapted the original version of Provision Mapping and developed it into a more evaluative framework that links a number of school improvement actions together. All the recommendations in this book have been tried and tested in Primary schools, and have been proven to:

  • bring about better progress and engagement for all pupils;
  • provide an enhanced understanding of inclusion by teachers;
  • improve communication between the school, parents and the Local Authority;
  • reduce bureaucracy and paperwork for SENCOs;
  • foster an improved understanding of ‘value for money’.

Headteachers, senior managers, leadership teams, SENCOs and other educational professionals will find the guidance and support provided by this toolkit invaluable. Provision Mapping will also be of value to those studying the more SEN-specific postgraduate diplomas or Masters level qualifications.
