How do I enter P Scales for end of key stage statutory assessment?

If a pupil has SEND and is working below the pre-key stage standards, their statutory outcome should be reported using P Scales.  Please be aware that P scales 5 to 8 are no longer used for statutory assessment.

Once the code of BLW or HNM (for Science) has been entered for the Teacher Assessment data at the end of key stage 1 or 2, to enter P scales please go to Admin > Students > Statutory Assessment > P Scale Assessment for SEN Children.

In this area on the left hand side you have the option to select the components you wish to assign a mark against (to select multiple components please hold down the CTRL key or CMD key if you are using a MAC as you are clicking on the components).

Once the components are selected you should enter the result date and year you wish the marks to be assigned against.  Please be advised the result year is the year the students took the test not the academic year.


You then have some options about the table format you require:

  • For data entry allows you to enter the P Scale data.
  • Grid with data shows the data entered and you then have an option to print the results here if required.
  • Blank grid can be used if you wish to print off the table and enter the data manually before entering it on the system.  

Enter the curriculum year that the students are in - in most instances this will be year 2 or 6, however if you are entering this for previous years you would select the year the student is in now. 

If you have more than one form group per year you can also choose to view this by class to enter the data separately for each group, if you don't select this it will show the whole year.  

Click onto show only former students if you have an off roll student you need to enter data for, this will only show off roll students so you will need to unclick this and click choose again for the on roll students.  

Once you select choose you will have a list of all students in the requested year group and can start entering the data. 

When the data has been entered please ensure to click save at the bottom of the page before navigating away.
