Department for Education update on primary progress measures 2020

NAHT has been in discussion with the accountability team at the Department for Education (DfE) regarding primary progress data from 2020, which will be the first year where pupils key stage 1 results are not reported using levels.

The DfE has provided the following update to share with members:

"In 2016 schools started using new assessments and test at KS1 and KS2, no longer reported in 'levels'.  The first primary cohort to have these new assessments as their 'prior attainment' will reach the end of KS2 in 2020. 

"We are currently working on the methodology for calculating the 2020 KS1-KS2 progress measures. We will be carrying out development work, testing and engaging with schools and stakeholders over the coming months. We plan to say more about any potential changes to the methodology by Spring 2020.  

"Although the input at KS1 is different, we are trying to keep the methodology as similar to previous years as possible to ensure the measures don't feel drastically different for schools. The exact progress methodology cannot be confirmed till September 2020 as we need to have the summer 2020 results before confirming the best way to calculate primary progress measures."
