Reception baseline assessment - information for parents/carers

Do you have a child starting reception class from the 2021/22 academic year?

If so, your child will be participating in the reception baseline assessment (RBA) within the first 6 weeks of starting reception.

The purpose of the assessment is to provide the starting point for a new measure that will help parents understand how well schools support their pupils to progress between reception and year 6 / the end of key stage 2.

Please note: this baseline assessment does not apply to all pupils.
