As a teacher, I have to keep record of attendance of my learners. This is to comply with Health and Safety in case something goes wrong, I would need to be able to provide a list of who was around and not. This record can also help identify or give an idea of the effect of non-attendance. As well as attendance records, I have to have carried out induction with my learners to inform them of the health and safety guidelines and keep a record of this. I also have to keep a record of all incidents on the incident book to comply with health and safety regulations.
I have to keep records of diagnostic assessment which have been used to identify the needs of my learners, Individual learning plans created after the diagnostic assessments, records of referrals and reports if any made to me or by me for example referrals to speech and language specialist, learning support assistance to monitor our progress. I would need to also have and maintain learners portfolios and on going progress reports to track the progress of my learners. Records from summative assessments and the units covered in my teaching are also necessary to be kept as they will help my to stay on track with the progress of my learners.
