The teacher assessment frameworks for 2017 have been published at Key stage 2 teacher assessment.

Following the removal of teacher assessment levels, these interim frameworks are to support teachers in making robust and accurate judgements for pupils at the end of key stage 2 in 2016. The interim teacher assessment frameworks are for 2015 to 2016 only. The Department for Education is evaluating options for future years.

The interim frameworks set out the standard(s) a child will be assessed against at the end of the key stage for reading, writing, mathematics and science.

To show that pupils have met the standard, teachers will need to have evidence that a pupil demonstrates consistent attainment of all the statements within the standard.
