Recommendation 1

The contents of this page are extracted from our 'The Results of B Squared’s “The Rochford Review: Final Report” Customer Questionnaire' that was first published in January 2017. The document can be downloaded in its entirety by clicking here.

The removal of the statutory requirement to assess pupils using P scales.

Our findings show that 58% of respondents agreed with this recommendation.

We asked respondents to identify whether they found the P scale level descriptors useful for assessing the cognitive development of pupils working at an ability lower than the expectations of the National Curriculum Year 1 programme of study. These descriptors were found useful by 76% of respondents and this opinion was shared across the different job roles. Head teachers had the highest percentage of respondents (82%) stating they find these descriptors useful.

We asked respondents if this recommendation was enacted, would they continue to use the P scale to fulfil any aspect of assessment within their school. There was an even split here, 50% of respondents said they would and 50% said they wouldn’t.
