These interim pre-key stage standards are to be used by teachers to report a statutory assessment outcome for specified pupils at the end of key stage 2. The statements reflect the attainment of pupils who have not yet completed the relevant programmes of study but have reached a chronological age that requires a statutory outcome to be reported.
Some of the statements within the standards are based on those elements of the key stage 1 curriculum that remain relevant for pupils who have not completed the key stage 2 programme of study. The additional standards supplement the interim teacher assessment frameworks at key stage 2.
The guidance is designed to enable schools to print out the information separately for English reading, English writing and mathematics. This is to allow the standards for each of the 3 subject areas to be considered in isolation, if required.
