RSE Insight Ltd
CASPA provides schools with a rich set of reports and graphs enabling schools to analyse their pupils’ P Scale and NC level attainment and progress using pupil and assessment data already available in school. 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 options to ignore category of need. CASPA’s wide range of analysis meets the needs of schools requiring analysis for individual pupils, the whole-school and cohorts within the school. RSE Insight provides customer-facing services for CASPA and works with schools on progress reporting, including:
- Focussing reporting to support self evaluation, Ofsted and Governor activities. We help you to identify what is needed to provide an accurate, focussed perspective relevant to your school.
- Understanding consequences of changing assessment frameworks on in-school reporting, and planning for these changes. Many schools develop new assessment frameworks with 100% focus on the classroom impact without ensuring that reporting is an integral part of the design. We help you to clarify your requirements at the start and support your activities to identify or commission a solution.
Schoolzine understands the difficulties faced when communicating to parents of children with special educational needs. We understand how your parents are so much more distant than those from mainstream schools for many reasons.

With heaps of additional functions including surveys, polls, dynamic calendar, online forms & digital signatures, parents’ evening bookings system and even language translation, your parents can feel reassured they know what is going on with their child no matter what.
