Home > The Engagement Model and Future Curriculum Hosted by Diane Rochford

This session introduces teachers to the background to Engagement and how we have arrived at this chapter in SEND. Diane Rochford is the Executive Head of John F Kennedy Academy in Newham and has over 20 years experience of working in SEND. As the Chair of the Rochford Review which considered and defined statutory assessment for pupils working below the standards of the National Curriculum tests, she contributed to the development of the Engagement Model. We are proud to welcome Diane to B&D.


Why should I attend?

Delegates will understand the role of the Engagement Model in Statutory Assessment of students who are working below the standards of National Curriculum Tests.  The session will make it clear how it is tool for assessment, not a curriculum as 'one size cannot fit all'.


What will it cover?

Delegates will:

  • be able to assess their own challenges and the uniqueness of their settings to adapt the model to suit the needs of their learners working below the standards of National Curriculum Tests
  • identify how the Engagement Model fits within the carefully designed OFSTED framework of Intent, Implementation and Impact for curriculum.
