Teacher assessment is used to report children’s attainment and progress to parents. Teachers will use the key stage 1 test results to help them to reach an overall judgement of the standards children have reached in English reading and mathematics. Parents will also receive a teacher assessment judgement for science, but there is no science test.


Parents will receive their child’s results by the end of the summer term.
