Assessing pupils working between the engagement model and the primary curriculum
Get to grips with the requirements for assessing pupils working between the engagement model and the level of the curriculum. You’ll also find advice on assessment for these pupils outside end-of-Key-Stage assessments.
Your teachers must use the pre-KS1 and KS2 standards set by the STA to make statutory teacher assessment judgements:
- At the end of each Key Stage
