The Engagement Model
The Engagement Model
What is the Engagement Model?
The engagement model is an assessment tool that helps schools meet their duties in supporting pupils at Key Stage 1 (KS1) and Key Stage 2 (KS2) who are working below the level of the national curriculum and who are not engaged in subject-specific study. This accounts for pupils who previously would have worked at P Levels 1 – 4. The model has 5 areas: exploration, realisation, anticipation, persistence and initiation. Progress through each of the 5 areas of engagement should be measured by identifying how established the pupil is against each of the areas of engagement. The Engagement Model identifies and celebrates linear and lateral progress, the consolidation and maintenance of knowledge, skills and concepts.
