Special Educational Needs (SEN)

Rochford Review Update! We are already working on new content based on the recommendations from the Rochford Review.

Over a third of specials schools within the UK already use our assessment software. Our market leading software goes from strength to strength as we continually improve the software.

Assessment Software Designed for Special Needs

Our software, known as Connecting Steps, was designed by a SEN teacher some 20 years ago, who identified that existing assessments weren't able to detect the subtle improvements achieved by her pupils. So, from the very beginning, our Connecting Steps assessments have been developed to identify and record even the smallest of achievements – from very low P Scales to Step 5+ (formerly Level 5+) of the National Curriculum – making our software ideal for the SEN setting.

  • Designed by SEN teachers, for SEN teachers 
  • Can identify even the smallest of improvements 
  • Progress can be tracked across wide range of curriculums and frameworks 

Our Connecting Steps V4 assessment software spans: 

  • EYFS 
  • P Scales P1(i) to P8 
  • National Curriculum Steps 
  • National Curriculum Years 
  • Adult Steps
