Teacher assessment frameworks

East Sussex guidance grids:

Key stage 1

Key stage 2

From 2023/24, end of KS1 assessments will no longer be statutory. Progress at the end of KS2 will be measured using the reception baseline which became statutory in 2020/21.

The KS1 teacher assessment frameworks (TAFs) will still be available on Standards and Testing Agency (STA). STA will also continue to produce end of KS1 tests for reading, mathematics and grammar, punctuation and spelling, but these will be optional.
