Track and assess SEND pupils in the new National Curriculum. Classroom Monitor gives you a proven and flexible alternative to levels and P-Scales.

When you need to track a wide range of abilities and behaviours for pupils with SEND, Classroom Monitor makes it much easier to record judgements and plan next steps.

Most other trackers will only ever classify pupils with SEND as working below age-related expectations. Classroom Monitor is different: you can assess pupils in the way that works best for them and for you, with a focus on positive outcomes.

We work with around 200 SEND and EBD schools, including pupil referral units and hospital schools, plus a wide network of SENDCO’s in mainstream schools.


A post-levels solution to assessing pupils with SEND


Classroom Monitor is fully customisable to any curriculum framework you choose to use. We also offer an off-the-shelf framework for pupils with SEND, designed by Access to Education (A2E).

The frameworks allow you to track small step progress in literacy and numeracy, and give you assessment criteria with related scoring. Although designed for children who fall significantly behind their peers, it focuses on positive outcomes and next-steps rather than under-achievement.
