Helping you assess the emotional & behavioural development of pupils aged 4-18
Identifying the support each pupil needs and providing you with practical strategies and techniques for use in the classroom or nurture group to help them achieve their full potential.
Championing nurture in education
We help to unlock pupils’ potential, by removing barriers to learning. In the last two years we’ve reached:

Why do we need to assess pupils’ wellbeing?
On average, over a third of pupils have some social, emotional or mental health (SEMH) need. For one in ten pupils, this need will be high, presenting as behavioural difficulties or diagnosable disorders like ADHD.
However, research in our Now You See Us study suggests that another quarter of pupils will have moderate SEMH needs, which are much harder for teachers to identify, but which can have a significant impact on pupils’ learning.
Using the Boxall Profile® is the best way to identify and address these hidden issues, to ensure that every child and young person gets the support they need to engage fully with their education.
Boxall Profile® assessments are not designed as a diagnostic tool for specific mental health conditions, learning difficulties or developmental difficulties. Instead, assessments are designed to help professionals understand and work more effectively with children and young people, in a way that’s sensitive to the needs of the child or young person being assessed.
The two-part checklist
The two-part checklist, which is completed by staff who know the child and young person best, is quick — and, very importantly, identifies the levels of skills the children and young people possess to access learning. Many children in school are insecure about their worth, often not able to articulate their feelings. Instead they show their discomfort by withdrawal, achieving much less than they could, not making good relationships.

Loved by industry leaders
"The Boxall Profile helped us gain a positive language. To identify where a child is in different areas in their development... It helped staff to look more perceptively, to think where does this behaviour come from?"
"When we [assessed] the whole school, there were children that were highlighted that… we’d never done any work with because they present as quiet and calm within school. But actually, they had more of a deep-rooted problem."
Evidence & Impact
Analysis of the Boxall Profile® data gathered by BCP primary schools during the academic year 2017/18 revealed high levels of SEMH needs in schools that
assessed the whole school or whole-year groups of children.
