5 reasons to try… SNAP

Rising Stars

Discover how SNAP from Rising Stars can help you to identify learning and behavioural needs in your school…

30-second briefing

SNAP is an award-winning resource that helps teachers to identify learning and behavioural needs, generate targeted interventions and track progress over time.

1 | Identify pupils’ needs

Identify 20 specific learning differences with SNAP-SpLD and 17 social, emotional and behavioural needs with SNAP-B. SNAP has an easy-to-use design following the ‘assess, plan, do, review’ model as set out in the SEND Code of Practice (2014).

Pupil assessments can be administered by any member of staff without the need for additional training. Questionnaires are completed by pupils, teachers and parents/carers to bring together everything that is known about a pupil in an effective triangulated approach.

2 | At-a-glance information

Once the assessment has been completed, a Core Profile is generated. This shows a pupil’s strengths and weaknesses and allows for empowered discussions between the pupil, family and school

3 | Generate reports

SNAP provides a selection of suggested interventions and strategies to involve both home and school, supporting the specific needs of pupils.

The school report can be shared with all relevant teaching staff and includes details about the specific area of need, chosen interventions, suggested classroom strategies, suggested websites and further reading. The home report can be shared with parents and carers and includes details about specific areas of need,

a summary of the selected interventions being carried out in school, strategies and activities to try at home and useful websites.

The suggested interventions and strategies can be easily combined with ideas, resources and approaches already in use in your school, and there are also additional information sheets that can be shared with teachers and parents/carers.

4 | Monitor progress

Reassess pupils to track progress overtime and explore whether interventions should be continued, adapted, replaced or stopped. Teachers can compare up to three assessments at a time.

Staff at Endeavour Academy said: ‘SNAP allows us to reassess, so after targeted intervention, progress can be monitored and evidenced in a visual report which allows us to show the impact of the work we have carried out on improving student wellbeing.”
