Supporting a whole school approach to assessing and addressing children and young people’s social, emotional and behavioural development to positively impact learning, behaviour, attendance and wellbeing.
How The Boxall Profile® Online Works
The Boxall Profile® Online is an invaluable teaching resource for the assessment of children and young people's social, emotional and behavioural development.
There are two Boxall Profile® Tests – one for children (nursery/primary school pupils), and the other for young people (secondary school students), which the Online Boxall Profile® automatically sets according to the date of birth inputted by the member of staff. On completion, the scores of each individual child are compared to the standardised emotional literacy scores of “competently functioning” children of a similar age group.
Individualised, achievable targets for social and emotional aptitudes are then set for the child which are reviewed and re-assessed periodically. Both profiles have two sections, each consisting of a list of 34 descriptive items.
This measures progress through the different aspects of development in the child’s early years- the first assessing the child and young person’s organisation of their learning experiences, the second, their internalisation of controls.
The diagnostic profile
This consists of items describing behaviours that inhibit or interfere with the child’s satisfactory involvement in school- self-limiting features, undeveloped behaviour and unsupported development. They are directly or indirectly the outcome of impaired learning in the earliest years. The earlier such children are identified the greater the hope of being able to address and remediate their social, emotional and behavioural difficulties by offering patient and supportive teaching.
The Boxall Profile® helps with
Early identification and
Supporting staff to develop their observational skills and their understanding of children and young people's difficulties.
Setting individualised, achievable targets that reinforce target behaviour and skills.
Helping staff review children and young people's target behaviour.

Boxall Profile® Online assessments cover ages 4 to 18.
There are two Boxall Profile® Online assessments: one for children (nursery/primary school pupils), and the other for young people (secondary school students).
The Boxall Profile® Online website will automatically select the correct assessment type using the date of birth on the EBP for the child or young person. You can amend this if you are working with a child or young person who is near the crossover age, but seems older or younger than their age.
Tokens do not expire and will remain in the account until you use them.
Tokens have however been designed for individual users and so if you switch to a subscription and invite other staff members, any tokens in the account will become unusable.
You can access your tokens again by removing all but one of the staff members in the account. The same applies if you are looking to purchase tokens after using a subscription.
Your card payment could be declined for many reasons. If this error appears, no money will have left your account.

If you are a parent or carer and your child is being assessed using the Boxall Profile®, this is very good news. It means that the teachers or professionals working with your child want to make sure that your child is getting the best access to education and being supported in a way your child will respond best. The Boxall Profile® is a tool that allows professionals working with children and young people to assess and identify their levels of social skills, emotional skills or behavioural difficulties and support them as necessary with the most appropriate interventions.
The Boxall Profile® works by comparing the results of your child’s assessment against a set of scores obtained from an average sample of children of a relevant age. If a child is scoring outside the expected range of scores, this would indicate the child may be experiencing difficulties with certain social or emotional skills. This then allows their school to place appropriate support to respond to those difficulties.
Many schools assess all their pupils to track progress, set targets and gain an overview of the whole school’s needs. Assessing children and young people using the Boxall Profile® empowers practitioners to identify needs early and put in place interventions to better support the children in their care.
Schools and educational professionals use the Boxall Profile® Online in different ways to help with identifying difficulties and planning interventions, so we always advise any parents or carers with specific questions on how it is being used to help a child to contact the school or professional directly.
