Children who start Reception in September 2021 will be the first group to take the new reception baseline assessment (RBA). The assessment will take place during the autumn term. The assessment is a short and simple check of a child's early literacy, communication, language and maths skill. There is no pass mark or score.
For further information about what the reception baseline assessment means for your child when they start school visit the governments website.
If as a parent or carer you would like more information, please speak with your child’s reception class teacher.
