Performance Descriptors: Key Stages 1 and 2

On Thursday 23 October 2014, the Department for Education released a consultation announcing new performance descriptors for reading, writing, mathematics, science in Key Stages 1 and 2.

The consultation document can be seen below:

KS1-KS2 Performance Descriptors Consultation

The consultation asks for teachers to submit their response to the proposal, ahead of trials of the new descriptors in some schools in Summer 2015.

Do you think the new performance descriptors are fit for purpose? Will they help students to make better progress throughout their primary education? Will teachers be ready to adopt the descriptors by September 2015?

If you would like your voice to be heard, submit your response to the consultation.
