At Wings success is measured and celebrated in a variety of ways.  Social and emotional progress is considered as important as academic progress. Through using the Boxall Profile bespoke programmes are implemented to improve social and emotional skills and approaches are devised to reduce barriers to learning due to difficulties in these areas. Attendance and engagement are tracked on a daily basis through school points and celebrated during whole school assemblies. Evidence towards personal outcomes are collected as part of the IDP document. The overall impact of the curriculum is based on pupils being successfully prepared for the next phase of their education, training or employment.
