Since its inception, NGN has been using the Boxall Profile
(a powerful assessment tool developed in the 1970s by
Marjorie Boxall) to measure pupils’ SEBD. By making the
Boxall Profile available online in 2015 the organisation was
able to gather anonymised data from more than 4,715
children and young people in 2015/2016, providing a
snapshot of the SEBD levels experienced by children
and young people and faced by teachers throughout
the UK. This is the Nurture Portrait 2016.
