Language Link is changing... Part 1: Reporting
Data and evidence… it’s everywhere! Not the most exciting of topics for some people but one that we hear in school every day and one that can result in a great sense of relief or a deep sense of panic!
Of course, we all know the importance of accurate and robust data both for tracking progress and identifying and addressing additional learning needs. That’s why schools across the country are busy developing their systems to make sure that they are collecting as much information as they can in a meaningful and useful way.
So, here’s the good news! The Language Link website has always provided instant, individual and class reports once children have finished the online screening. With no need for additional input, the data is there at your fingertips!
From September 2017, refined and brand new reports will be available for Year Groups, Key Stages and the whole school. At the click of a button and whether you are a teacher, Head of Key Stage, SENCo or school leader, you will be able to see at a glance how many children have been screened, how many are experiencing moderate or severe difficulties with language and how many are accessing additional support.
What’s more, for the first time ever, you will be able to view a child’s journey from Reception through to Year 6 in a single report, including any Speech Link and Language Link data or intervention alongside that provided by Infant and Junior Language Link.
