Really helpful article, especially examples. Just wondering about the SEMH outcome, I always find these the hardest to formulate. Would an EHCP outcome ever be set for a term? Or is this a step on the way to a longer term outcome? There seems a lot of ambition in the outcome (which is good!) is it achievable? For a child with SEMH needs  warranting an EHCP will they, in one term, learn to "identify, label and manage their emotions". My experience is that we find it harder to break down the steps towards SEMH outcomes than we do in for example literacy or physical development , and that this can result in targets which are not finely graded enough... 

Thanks Robert - really insightful point. Yes, SEMH outcomes can be challenging to create discrete and tangible steps that can be accurately measured. Soft outcomes always have a degree of subjectivity and the perspective of one professional can differ from another looking at the same actions / behaviour. Your comment on 'is it achievable' is a valid one, whilst all outcomes need to 'stretch' development, they must be achievable. In the specific SEMH outcome cited in the article, 'identify, label and manage' certainly does look like a 'stretch', however it depends on where the child's development was prior to the outcome being set ( i.e. was the child able to identify and label, but not manage their emotions, so it is the final step that has been added?). All really great comments and a real catalyst for discussion. Thanks so much for reading & engaging with this article Robert.
