National Curriculum 2014
B Squared is a provider of high quality, user friendly software for tracking pupil attainment and progress. In recent years the education landscape has shifted considerably within the Primary system, and our Connecting Steps software has been expanded to cover all subjects within the new National Curriculum for Key Stages 1 and 2. We have updated our content inline with the 2014 Primary National Curriculum, we have created two breakdowns for each subject – one based on Steps (replacing the traditional system of levels) and the other on End of Year outcomes.

Connecting Steps V4 spans the following curriculums, up to the end of Key Stage 2:
- Early Steps - for the Early Years Foundation Stage
- Engagement Steps - for pupils not yet engaged in subject specific learning (complex needs)
- Primary Steps - for pupils working at or below age related expectation
Combining multiple curriculums into one software package provides the school with a more powerful solution. One system to manage, one system to train staff on and the benefits of links between the curriculums.
