SGA Systems Ltd


CASPA has been created by SGA Systems specifically for schools with SEN pupils. CASPA provides schools with a rich set of reports and graphs enabling schools to analyse their pupils’ attainment and progress using pupil and assessment data already available in school.

OFSTED places increased emphasis on self-evaluation and requires schools to demonstrate good progress for their SEN pupils. To judge that a pupil’s progress is good, schools need something to compare their progress against – CASPA’s comparative data provides a powerful set of benchmarks to support this requirement based on pupil age, prior attainment and category of need, with an option to ignore category of need.

CASPA has been in use for many years and has been adopted in over 80% of local authorities in England as well as a rapidly growing number of independent and non-maintained schools. CASPA’s wide range of analysis meets the needs of schools requiring analysis for individual pupils, the whole-school and cohorts within the school.
