The planning process

After Chris’ priority learning needs have been identified, relevant learning outcomes from each PLU can be selected as part of the long-term plans for his learning journey. Learning outcomes selected will be suitable for addressing Chris’ priority learning needs while also offering him access to a wide and varied curriculum. The diagram below outlines the planning process followed to create a relevant learning journey for Chris.


Priority learning needs identified and IEP created

Relevant PLUs selected for long-term, thematic plans

Personalised targets developed in short-term plans

Cross-curricular activities designed

 Due to the dynamic needs and unpredictable nature of learners in Chris’ school, his class teacher chooses to plan from September to the end of December initially, completing further planning from January to June after this period to allow time for her to assess student progress and develop the most relevant plans for each learner.
