For teacher sub-standard 5c, you need to demonstrate consistently demonstrate an awareness of the physical, social and intellectual development of children, and know how to adapt teaching to support pupils’ education at different stages of development

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

  • Application of appropriate strategies

  • Training records – ability to articulate why children need a particular type of approach

  • Articles/research into pedagogical practices around SEND

  • Lesson plans show understanding of next steps based on children’s needs

  • Meetings with SENCo,


  • Pupil progress meetings

  • Lessons show personalisation

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.
