B Squared Ltd
B Squared have been working with schools for over 20 years, creating assessment frameworks for the curriculums that schools follow. Our approach to assessment allows schools to show the small steps of progress pupils with SEND make. Over the years we have partnered with schools to develop new frameworks and new features.
B Squared host ‘The Virtual SEND Conference’ to help schools to support their pupils with SEND, in a time when schools are facing ever-increasing financial pressure. Events are broadcast live on the day with a chat facility to enable interaction between speakers and delegates. Videos of all sessions are then available to view online whenever and wherever is convenient.
Over recent years big changes around supporting pupils with SEND have been seen, with very little money and therefore time to fully implement these changes. Professionals working with pupils with SEND need support and guidance on a wide range of areas they are required to be experts on. The Virtual SEND Conferences’ mission is to provide affordable, easily accessible, and easy to share help and guidance to raise the priority of SEND in schools.
