What is the Boxall Profile®?

The Boxall Profile® is an evidence based tool 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.

It is designed to help you assess the emotional & behavioural development of pupils aged 4-18.

The Boxall Profile® is the first step along the graduated approach to nurture and is the best way to identify and address hidden issues, ensuring that every child and young person gets the support they need to engage fully with their learning. 

The combination of the assessment tool and the graduated approach to nurture helps to create a nurturing and supportive environment, ensuring that children and young people's emotional and social wellbeing is addressed effectively throughout the different levels of support.

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.
