Further statutory assessments:

Reception Baseline Assessment:

The RBA will be statutory in schools from September 2021. Further details about the RBA can be found in this information leaflet.

The RBA will be an activity-based assessment of pupils’ starting points in:

  • language, communication and literacy
  • mathematics

The RBA will be a short task-based assessment. Pupils will use practical resources to complete these tasks and teachers will record the results on a laptop, computer or tablet. It will not be used to label or track individual pupils.

Schools will be required to carry out the assessment within the first 6 weeks of pupils starting reception.

No numerical score will be shared and the data will only be used at the end of year 6 to form the school-level progress measure.

 

Phonics Screening Check Year 1:

Year 1 pupils will complete their phonics screening check in the week beginning Monday 6th June 2022.

 

Phonics Screening Check Year 2:

Cancellation of the phonics screening check in June 2021 means incoming Year 2 pupils will not have taken the check in Year 1.

As in the 2020/21 academic year, it will be statutory for schools to administer a past version of the check to Year 2 pupils during the second half of the 2021 Autumn term.

Year 2 pupils who meet the expected standard in the Autumn check will not be required to complete any further statutory assessments in phonics. Year 2 pupils who do not meet the expected standard in the Autumn check will be expected to take the statutory check in June 2022.
