We set targets according to the individual pupil’s starting points.  We use P’levels and National Curriculum expectations, however in order to bridge the gap between P’levels and National curriculum we use DAPA levels.  DAPA levels are largely concerned with embedding skills and enhancing these, enabling pupils to access the National Curriculum with greater success. The target setting expectations broadly take into account progression Guidance along with recommendations from the Special Schools Forum for assessment.
