Find out how the process works for KS1 and KS2, to help you judge pupils' progress this year and prepare to comply with your requirements for 2021/22.

The frameworks teachers must use

You must use the frameworks published by the Standards and Testing Agency (STA) to make judgements about pupils at the end of KS1 and KS2.

KS1

For reading, writing and maths, the KS1 framework has sets of performance descriptors to help identify pupils who are working:

  • Towards the expected standard
  • At the expected standard
  • At greater depth

For science, there is a single set of performance descriptors to determine whether pupils are working at the expected standard.

KS2

  • Towards the expected standard
  • At the expected standard
  • At greater depth 

For science, there is a single set of performance descriptors to help you to determine whether pupils are working at the expected standard.
