SEND Assessment: Measuring what matters and evidencing outstanding outcomes - London

Thursday 8 Feb 2018
Holiday Inn Wembley, London, HA9

Why is this conference relevant? 

The Government's response to the Rochford Review recommendations was made public in September 2017. What does this mean for school assessment?

For pupils engaged in subject-specific learning:

  • P scales are to be removed
  • Interim pre-key stage standards are to be made permanent.

For pupils engaged in non-subject-specific learning:

  • Seven areas of engagement for cognition and learning are to be piloted
  • Schools are to have freedom to assess in any way.

Ensuring you can accurately measure how much progress your SEND pupils are making over time is an ongoing challenge for schools.  Especially, in light of the changes above

This is the only event where you will gain the knowledge and strategies needed to accurately assess and support the progress of SEND pupils in your school, and evidence this to parents and Ofsted. 


What can I expect?

  • Learn how to evidence to Ofsted what outstanding progress looks like for each individual pupil in your school.
  • Learn how to implement Rochford Review recommendations and gain examples of good practice.
  • Understand how neuroscience can help you develop the right curriculum and assessment procedures for your pupils.
  • Ensure your assessment and data systems provide a more holistic view of the child and accurately assess life skills.
  • Overcome a loss of common language by discussing and networking with your peers.

Who should attend?

  • SENCOs
  • Headteachers
  • Deputy Headteachers
  • Assistant Headteachers
  • Assessment/Curriculum Leads

This event is relevant for both mainstream and special schools.
