Reception Baseline Assessment - September 2021

BIshopstone CE Primary took part in the trials of the Baseline Assessment and these are now in place.

The reception baseline assessment (RBA) is a short and simple check of a child’s early literacy, communication, language and maths skills when they begin school and statutory for all schools from September 2021.  

The assessment will form the start of a new measure of how schools are helping their pupils to progress between reception and year 6.

Your child does not need to prepare. There is no pass mark or score and your child will not realise they’re doing an assessment.  During a 20-minute one-to-one session with their teacher or teaching assistant, your child will do a number of practical and interactive tasks. Your child can answer questions verbally or by pointing or moving objects.

The assessment can take place at any point in the first six weeks of a child starting reception.

Why the assessment is being introduced

The assessment provides a better starting point to measure the progress a school makes with their pupils throughout their whole time at primary school, between reception and year 6.  Parents will be able to see how well the school is supporting its pupils. It will also help teachers get to know their new class when they start school.

If you have any further questions, please contact Miss Pearson who will be happy to explain further.
