In lots of different ways school and learning is very different for ASN pupils. They often make less progress and the progress they do make is often spiky. There is lots going on and lots to tell parents about.
The communication parents receive needs to make sense. It needs to help parent understand where their child is making progress and where they aren’t. To cover it all in a written report would take a lot of time and without various diagrams or graphs (which would need to be created), it would be difficult to convey a simple overview.
Sharing the evidence you collect in school with parents make things simple and clear. Parents can see what their child is doing, what they are working towards and what amazing things their child has achieved. Over time the parents can see where their child is progressing and where they aren’t. If your school has allowed parents to share evidence from home, you can see what the child can achieve at home, in a different environment.
Some schools in Scotland have been using Evisense with parents for over 3 years. One of our schools is now using ‘Live Reporting’, where the parents can see where their children are up to throughout the year. This isn’t daily updating, but it means parents can log into Evisense at various points in the year to see what their child has been doing in school.
Evisense makes communicating with parents simpler.
