Key Stage 1 Assessments

Our key stage 1 assessment range includes mathematics and reading assessments for use in the year 1 spring and summer terms and the year 2 autumn and spring terms.

The format of our year 1 materials takes into particular consideration the young age of the children and includes scaffolding for you to provide pupils with appropriate support. The year 2 materials more closely follow the format of the national curriculum tests to help build familiarity and confidence ahead of the end-of-year tests.
