The Standards and Testing Agency (STA) has published the new pre-key stage standards at key stage one and key stage two for use from the 2018/19 academic year. Pre-key stage standards are for pupils who are working below the overall standard of national curriculum assessments, but who are engaged in subject-specific study.

In summer 2019, teachers must use these pre-key stage standards to make statutory teacher assessment judgements at the end of key stage one or key stage two for pupils who are working below the national curriculum teacher assessment frameworks, and above P scale four.

If a pupil is working below these standards, teachers should report their outcomes using P scales one to four.

These changes follow last year’s consultation on the recommendations made by the Rochford Review, which called for these standards to be introduced, replacing the ‘P scales’.
