Personalised short-term targets

At the end of each half term, Chris’ teacher reviews and records his progress. She then uses this information to adapt and personalise the identified learning outcomes for the following half term to suit Chris’ stage on his learning journey. First the progression pathways identified in the long-term plans are reviewed to ensure they are the most appropriate reflection of the level he is currently working at (this varies across learning outcomes). A specific SMART target is then written for each learning outcome, detailing the features of quality required for successful completion.

At this stage in the planning process, Chris’ teacher aligns targets for all students in Chris’ class for each element of each PLU to allow for the development of whole-class or small-group activities with personalised goals.

An example of this planning can be found below.
