The Engagement Model has replaced P scales 1 to 4, for students working below the standard of national curriculum assessments and not engaged in subject-specific study. This became statutory in the 2021/22 academic year. Teachers must use the Engagement Model to assess pupils working below the standard of the national curriculum assessments and not engaged in subject-specific study for key stage 1 and key stage 2 statutory assessments. For the DfE guidance on this model click here.
To enter marks for students not engaged in subject specific study, go to Admin > Students > Statutory Assessment
Select either 'End of Key Stage 1' or 'End of Key Stage 2' from the Key Stage dropdown, then highlight the assessment component(s) you want to record marks for, the result date, year of the result, and students' academic year. Then click Choose :
From the dropdown you will find EM towards the base of the available marks, which will indicate the student is working working below the standard of national curriculum assessments and not engaged in subject-specific study. Once you have finished entering marks, you will need to Save at the base of the table.
