Primary assessment consultations: Ofqual's response

Ofqual responds to the consultations 'primary assessment in England' and 'Rochford review recommendations'.



In regulating national assessments, Ofqual’s objectives are to promote standards and confidence in statutory early years assessments and primary assessments at key stage 1 and key stage 2. Our key concern is that assessments should be valid; this response provides a view on aspects of the consultation that relate to assessment validity. Our response does not consider proposals that fall outside our remit, such as those relating to whether or not there should be particular statutory assessments, or those relating to curriculum policy, accountability policy or internal school assessment.
