This exploratory study examines the views and experiences of students, parents/carers and school staff of person centred annual reviews (PCARs). Furthermore, the impact of this process is explored in terms of student engagement. Focus groups were held with students to elicit their views. Parents'/carers' and school staff's views were obtained through semi-structured interviews. The data demonstrated positive attitudes towards the PCARs across all participant groups and the themes identified were applicable to Appleton et al's (2006) construct and model of student engagement. Findings suggests that PCARs can foster student engagement. The relevance of the findings and research areas are discussed with regards to the role of the educational psychologist and professional practice.
