Kingsweston Pathways

Personalised Learning

All students at Kingsweston are set Personal Learning Outcomes (PLOs). PLOs are the incremental steps towards achieving their short term and long term EHCP outcomes.  Formative assessment is used to regularly monitor progress towards each students' PLOs to ensure each outcome is achievable, yet challenging

 For students in KS4 and Post-16, their PLOs are based on their Preparation for Adulthood outcomes.
