We have created 3 new frameworks in response to the removal of P Levels and the Rochford Review recommendations. The new frameworks are:
- Engagement Steps (Students not yet engaged in subject-specific learning)
- Progression Steps (Students engaged in subject-specific learning)
- Primary Steps - End of Year Outcomes (Students engaged in subject-specific learning in a primary setting)
In old money, the Engagement Steps covers P1 to P6, Progression Steps covers from P4 to Level 7 and Primary Steps covers from P4 to above Year 6 End of Year Outcome. The following link will show you the comparison between the different frameworks and also the comparison against the old P Levels and National Curriculum Levels:

Engagement Steps is our new formative assessment framework for pupils not yet engaged in subject-specific learning. It comprises four sections which reflect the four broad areas of need.
This framework will help teachers to record the achievements
of pupils who are working profoundly beneath age-related expectations and who are working on an informal curriculum. For more information please visit our Connecting Steps website.
Progression Steps is our new formative assessment framework for pupils who are engaging with subject-specific learning. It will over time comprise books which reflect the four broad areas of need. This framework covers the ability range identified by
the new performance descriptors.
Within our new Progression Steps framework, Cognition and Learning focuses on academic achievement. The Rochford Report: Final Report does not attempt to tell schools what or how they should teach their pupils. On the whole,
schools will still deliver the National Curriculum, differentiating content according to their pupils’ needs. We are basing the Cognition and Learning aspect of Progression Steps on the primary National Curriculum using the same subjects and breadth.
Our assessment frameworks for pupils with SEND engaged in subject specific learning covers the following subjects:
||Sex & Relationship Education
|Art & Design
||Design & Technology
