Dear Parents,   The government has announced changes to the assessment and reporting arrangements this year.   The full document can be found here: -Extra measures to support students ahed of next summer The main points are as follows: For 2021, we have removed:
  • all key stage 1 (KS1) tests
  • the key stage 2 (KS2) English grammar, punctuation and spelling test
  • the requirement to make and report teacher assessment judgements for science at KS1 and KS2
This means that the following statutory assessments will continue in 2021:
  • the phonics screening check for year 1 pupils (and year 2 pupils who have not met the expected standard previously)
  • KS2 English reading and mathematics tests
  • KS1 and KS2 teacher assessment (excluding science)
I’m sure that in January there will be more information to follow and I will keep you updated. Have a lovely weekend, Mrs Taylor
