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.
