One-page Profiles

The purpose of a one-page profile and a person-centred description is to provide a summary of person-centred information that people in the person’s life can use to either get to know them quickly, or ensure that they are providing consistent support in the way that the person wants. Every child and teaching staff have their own one-page profile which are shared with the appropriate people to ensure that they are being fully supported in every which way possible.

The profiles are split into three sections with the headings:

  • Things we admire about you
  • What’s important to me
  • What support I need

The children and teaching staff all review these headings 3 times a year during a timetabled academic and self-assessment week. Through lots of interactive fun activities the children and staff get to know what information can be added to each section.

For SEN children these one-page profiles are the basis for our annual review meeting and we discuss what is working and what is not working and update and recreate a new one-page profile with all members involved in that child’s education. We helped to pilot and promote the one page profiles in Stockport through working with Helen Sanderson one of past parents. Helen Sanderson is the lady behind the person-centred thinking approach and planning used within all Stockport schools now. We have now become a champion school whereby we can help and share ideas with schools, who are maybe just beginning this journey or need guidance and support.

We contribute to blogs, featured in a short film promoting the importance and advantages of one-page profiles and are going to be included in a chapter in a newly published book by HSA (Helen Sanderson Associates).
