If you still have your resource pack (this is the box with the physical resources such as bears and shapes) then you can order the basic renewal pack which will provide you with access to the online system for one academic year and a teacher guide. If you require a new resource pack then you can order the full renewal pack which includes a new resource pack.

If you wish to order extra resource packs so that more of your teachers/teaching assistants can conduct the assessment at one time, please indicate the number of additional packs below.

If you would prefer to administer the assessment using individual pupil record booklets, rather than using the online system, please indicate the number of packs of pupil booklets you require below, in addition to the school pack. (Please note you will still need to record the individual question responses for each child online to be able to receive the scaled scores and reporting).
