An Individual Education Plan is a legally required document for certain groups of pupils and in the UK the minimum should in particular specify :

  • The nature of the challenges the child faces – what is acting as a barrier to the child’s access to education.
  • What are the Additional Learning Needs (Special Needs) of the pupil if relevant.
  • What learning targets have been decided for the pupil, these should also include a time frame and progress checks.
  • How support for the pupil will be organised and who is responsible for different aspects of support.
  • How success and progress will be measured – with respect to the targets which have been agreed on.
  • How parent’s are involved and how home support will contribute to the IEP.
  • What materials, techniques and processes will be involved in the education plan.

The student should be actively involved in the development of their Individual Education Plan and be given the opportunity to discuss any points which concern them, a provision map may also be included at this point. There is a useful tool known as IEP writer available. Parents should also be sent a final copy of the agreed IEP.

Who might be involved in an IEP ?

Posted by duncwilson on 8th May and posted in Uncategorized

The following list suggests the range of people who might be involved in a pupil’s individual education plan although this list is not definitive or exhaustive.

  • The student / pupil – it is important that the pupil understands what is on the education plan and how it is designed to help them.
  • The student’s parents – parents will probably be involved in some planning meetings, should be aware of the plan, agree to it and provide the parental support that the plan may specify.
  • Special education teacher – they will have specialist knowledge and be aware of the legal requirements of implementing individual education plans for specific groups of students.
  • Student’s main teacher or head of year – they will be able to provide lots of background knowledge for the issues the individual faces and will be involved in implementing and monitoring the
    IEP.
  • Educational psychologist  – it is common for pupils to be referred to an edpsyc prior to the IEP being written and will often be involved at regular stages after implementation.
