Information for Parents 2017 Key Stages 1 & 2 tests

Over the last two years the government have made some changes to assessment.

From now on in Years 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6, the children are assessed against the objectives in the New National Curriculum (2014), relevant for their year group. Year 1 = Stage 1, Year 2 = Stage 2, Year 3 = Stage 3, Year 4 = Stage 4, Year 5 = Stage 5 and Year 6 = Stage 6.

Within those stages the children could be:

Mastery

The expectation is that at the end of a school year the children are ‘secure’ in the appropriate stage. With the exception of Reading and Writing in Years 3 and 4 and Years 5 and 6 because Years 3 and 4 have the same English objectives, as do Years 5 and 6, therefore for Years 3 and 5 they have two years in which to complete the objectives, so if they are currently developing they are on track to secure the objectives for English by the end of the following year.
