KS1 assessment

This section covers the collection and submission of individual pupil level results of Teacher Assessments at the end of Key Stage 1 (KS1).

The following KS1 assessments are now optional:

  • teacher assessment judgements in English reading, English writing, mathematics and science
  • tests in English reading and mathematics (the English grammar, punctuation and spelling test will also remain optional)
  • where relevant, using the pre-key stage standards or engagement model
