SAC - Information for Registered Professionals

Who may provide evidence in support of a student's SAC needs?

There are two types of submission:
(i) Either a submission based on school evidence

  • SENCOs and other Learning Support staff and RTLB collect appropriate evidence from school-based testing and teacher observations or comments for the use of Special Assessment Conditions from the student’s time at secondary school.
  • School applications may be based upon the historical findings of a registered professional, with the school requesting continuation of assistance by showing current need.

(ii) Or a submission supported by a report from an appropriately qualified independent registered professional that recommends Special Assessment Conditions to address the student’s specified assessment needs

  • A report for a specific learning disorder (SLD) that predates the student’s time at secondary school may need to be supplemented with additional current evidence.
  • A report for sensory, physical and medical conditions should date from the most recent specialist visit.
