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.
Over the last few years we have been working on a range of projects that have increased the breadth of content from B Squared. We have produced a tool for profiling Autism that covers Communication, Social Interaction, Flexibility of Thought and Emotional Regulation. We have worked on a Developmental Continuum for pupils with profound and complex needs, covering Expressive and Receptive Communication, Social and Emotional Affection, Comprehension and Imagination, and Sensory and/or Physical operation. This currently covers the ability of pupils working between levels P1(i) to P3(ii) but we have already been asked to develop this further.
We are working on identifying the best approach to meet the needs of schools now and in the future. It is clear from the Report that all schools will be required/recommended to assess pupils with SEND across all four areas. We will be able to respond quickly to the changes that may follow when The Government confirms the direction of statutory assessment for SEND. We will be able to support our schools to implement these changes.
Our new Evisense software is part of the future of assessment for SEND and it is clear from both the Rochford Review’s recommendations and responses from professionals that evidence is going to play a much bigger role in the future for pupils with SEND.
If you want to know more about how we will be meeting the challenge of the changes, then come and talk to us at the BETT Show in London (25th to 28th January) or the Education Show in Birmingham (16th to 18th March).
Once The Government has responded to the Rochford Review and our plans are finalised we will go on an SEND Assessment Roadshow. We will tour the country inviting schools to:
- Find out about how we are adapting our assessment frameworks.
- Learn how they can use Evisense with Connecting Steps.
- Refreshed training.
- Discover and discuss best practice for SEND assessment.
- A chance to network with other schools using B Squared products
We will be inviting schools to host these events around the country, if you are interested in hosting the roadshow for your local area, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
