For use with individual pupils aged from 8-15 years, younger children can also use it with an adult providing support. Ideally used in a one to one context, adult and pupil work through the statements together and produce a profile of the pupil at that specific point in time. The resource can also be utilised by an adult who knows the pupil, as a check for their perceptions of the social and emotional needs of that individual. For use as a development aid, to provide a discussion point and reference for gauging the direction a support programme could take. The indicator obtains information about the distance travelled by one child by comparing their current social and emotional competence with their previous level.
