Stepping Stones Special School for Children with Autism and Complex Needs has an evidence based teaching and learning ethos. Our ultimate goal would be to improve learning through effective assessment practices, ensuring that each pupil is enabled to reach their full potential.

Assessment is an on-going process throughout the child’s education. Therefore, it is important that all members of the teaching staff and behavioural team are involved in developing, implementing, and reviewing the assessment policy. Parents should be also involved in the assessment policy, which helps in creating a sense of ownership and allows for a more effective implementation.
