For teacher sub-standard 5b, you need to demonstrate that you have a secure understanding of how a range of factors can inhibit pupils’ ability to learn, and how best to overcome these

The types of evidence you can use to showcase this are:

  • Planning /differentiation – shows understanding of child development

  • Children’s work

  • Pupil progress meetings and conferencing

  • Resources

  • Learning styles

  • Observations

  • Use of Pupil Profile SEN information + strategies

  • Use of opportunities to promote Literacy, Numeracy, ICT

  • Appropriate use of TAs, provision maps, decisions with support staff

  • Diary notes of meetings with SENCo

  • Training records

  • Use of referral to internal and external agencies

  • Knowledge of and application of up to date teaching pedagogies

Remember that the evidence in isolation isn’t enough, you will need to annotate it to signpost exactly where/how you are meeting the standard. If you are using an article from your research, you should try and write up notes on the three I’s (intent, implementation, impact) to say how the article or research has influenced your teaching. You could also refer to the research in your lesson planning and/or lesson evaluations.

You can use photographic evidence to support your evidence for this standard. Be sure to anonymise any student work or data by blacking out names or identifying details. You could use witness statements to support some of this evidence or a copy of CPD notes signed and dated by your mentor.
