Primary school pupil assessment: Rochford Review recommendations –Government Consultation

A guiding hand through the consultation document!

On 30th March 2017 Justine Greening launched the long awaited consultation on the recommendations from the Rochford Review.  This is an opportunity for every school, teacher and parent with children working below the standard of the national curriculum to have their say about the future of assessment for this group of pupils.

This consultation sits alongside the consultation on primary assessment and I would urge early years and secondary colleagues to put their point of view as the final measures that come from this consultation will impact across all phases.

The consultation documentation and on-line response can be found at:

The closing date for responses is 22 June 2017.

I have prepared this synopsis of what the consultation document is asking you to comment on and giving you some points to consider.
