Key Stage 1 Assessments

Our new range of age-appropriate, paper-based mathematics and reading assessments are available for use in the summer term of year 1 and the autumn term of year 2.

The papers are designed to take into account the young age of pupils and follow the format of the key stage 1 national curriculum tests to help build children’s familiarity and confidence in assessments.

Year 1

Two child-friendly mathematics papers are available for the year 1 summer term, with paper 2 requiring pupils to work more independently with some abstract methods.

Two child-friendly reading papers are available for use in the year 1 summer term, one for all pupils with teacher support and mediation and an additional reading booklet for pupils who can work more independently.

Year 2

Two age-appropriate mathematics booklets are available for use in the year 2 autumn term, one focusing on arithmetic skills and the other requiring reasoning skills.

Two age-appropriate reading papers are available for use in the year 2 autumn term. One is an accessible booklet for all pupils and the second contains more challenging questions for more confident readers.
