The Golden Thread

At Highfield School we collect evidence to demonstrate progress each student makes towards their Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) outcomes.

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 or a piece of work.

Golden Thread

Through teachers planning they ensure students work on their small step targets at every opportunity thus why we call it “The Golden Thread”.
