End of Key Stage Results
In March 2014, the Department for Education (DfE) published an outline of the new assessment and accountability systems for primary schools.
End of KS1 assessments - At the end of KS1 teacher assessment in maths and reading will be informed by externally set, internally marked tests. Writing will also be teacher assessed and teachers' judgements will be informed by an externally set test in grammar, punctuation and spelling (GPS).
End of KS2 assessments - At the end of KS2 pupils will continue to sit externally set and marked tests in mathematics, reading and GPS. These will be used for school performance measures from 2016 onwards. In addition to this we carry out teacher assessment in mathematics, reading, writing and science to give a broader picture of children's attainment.
