New resources for parents about primary assessments

Wednesday, 28 March 2018

The Standards Testing Agency has published an information leaflet and 2 videos for parents of children in years 2 and 6 about national curriculum assessments. The purpose of these materials is to help parents understand more about the end of key stage assessments that will be administered in primary schools in May.

They provide basic information about the purpose and format of the tests, how parents can best support their children and how results will be reported.
