Ian Austin – 2015 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Education

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Ian Austin on 2015-10-29.

To ask the Secretary of State for Education, how she plans for her Department’s reception baseline assessment to take account of pupils that move school.

Nick Gibb

When a pupil moves school, their reception baseline outcome will move with them. The Key Stage 2 outcome will be compared to the outcomes of all pupils nationally who had the same attainment in reception in order to determine how much relative progress the pupil has made. The progress outcome for the school will be created from the average relative progress of all its pupils.
