New baseline testing for reception children

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

In North Yorkshire (it may be the same for everyone) we have been told that the new Gov baseline on entry testing is going to be statutory as of Sep 2016. That is, perform some sort of test possibly on a computer!!! for a 4 year old that produces an assessment value in order to track children accurately from reception to year 6. We have to make our choice of which baseline test to have in school by January, the trouble is the 'list' of options is not available until early next year. bit concerned A) about the obvious issues around testing 4 year olds and B) is this a purposeful move to make us feel like we have an option only to impose something on us because we have little time to choose? Our school is a member of an alliance so we are making our choice jointly. Ant thoughts??
