Conclusion Conference

The Curriculum Conclusion: how the final Rochford Review recommendations will define personalised curriculum provision; The Engagement Model and the 2019 EIF Framework.

15 November 2019 London – Diane Rochford O.B.E.


The 2019 OFSTED framework introduces a new judgement: the ‘quality of education’ provided by a school to its pupils. It is clear in the published guidance that OFSTED will consider the school’s curriculum intent, implementation and impact.

The new framework supports the impact of the Rochford Review (2016); on the statutory assessment of pupils; specifically the removal of P Scales. For pupils engaged in subject specific learning, assessment will be through pre-key stage standards.

For pupils not engaged in more formal subject specific learning; assessment will be through the areas of engagement.

The Expert Review Group (2018/19) led a pilot study to further test and review the seven aspects of engagement for assessment. The findings of the group, led by Diane Rochford OBE; are due in October 2019.

These final recommendations of the Rochford Review will change how schools design and deliver their curriculum for all learners with SEND.

This conference gives delegates the opportunity to:

  • hear the latest DfE Guidance for the Engagement Model; 
  • understand assessment linked to pedagogy;
  • discuss the implications for the 2019 EIF for their school;
  • create an ‘engaging culture’ – changing a whole school vision and culture;
  • listen to how the new Engagement model changes assessment of learning;
  • use assessment to inform provision through reflection to link into EHCPs and curricula;
  • see what practical application of the Engagement Model looks like in classroom practice;
  • reflect on the Engagement Model to improve a pupil’s personalised curriculum offer;
  • create a pupil’s personalised curriculum;
  • hear one school’s experience; lightbulb moments; and takeaway learning from the expert review group pilot.

Delegates will have the opportunity to choose 2 of 3 workshops, which explore practical exemplification of the DfE Guidance on the Engagement Model.
