Removal of teacher assessment for English reading and mathematics
Schools are no longer required to make statutory teacher assessment (TA) judgements in English reading and mathematics. This change has been made in order to reduce assessment burdens on schools, as set out in the government response to the 2017 public consultation on Primary assessment in England. However, Reading and Maths are to be reported if the student is working at the pre-key stage Standard. P scales should continue to be used for statutory assessment of pupils not engaged in subject-specific study at the end of KS2. See details below:
An error will occur if you try to add both a overall subject P-scale (eg English) and a subject component P-scale (eg Reading).
When NOTSEN is submitted as a valid result for a P scale, it indicates that the pupil is not on the SEN register but not yet working at PK1 standard. English as a second language is the most common reason for this.
