Reception Baseline Assessment


The DfE has announced that the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER) will develop the new Reception Baseline Assessment for introduction in the academic year 2020/21. 

The DfE has confirmed that, from 2027, YR to KS2 progress measures will be published for all-through primary schools only.  Infant and junior schools will be responsible ‘for demonstrating the progress their pupils have made to Ofsted and those with an interest in school performance’ / ‘for evidencing progress based on their own assessment information’.  The DfE has provided further information on Measuring progress in primary schools.
