Rochford review: final report

The DfE has published the final report for the Rochford review.

The final report’s recommendations include:

  • the removal of the statutory requirement to assess pupils with SEND who are working below the standard using performance scales (P scales)

  • that the interim pre-key stage standards for pupils working below the standard of national curriculum tests are made permanent and extended to include all pupils engaged in subject-specific learning
  • that schools assess pupils’ development in all 4 areas of need outlined in the SEND Code of Practice, but statutory assessment for pupils who are not engaged in subject-specific learning should be limited to the area of cognition and learning.
