What are pre-key stage standards in relation to key stage 1 statutory data?
As per the DfE the pre-key stage standards are for pupils who are working below the standard of the national curriculum assessments and engaged in subject-specific study. This means they will be working below the lowest standard in the relevant framework for Teacher Assessment.
These are designed to assess and record attainment in these subjects, but do not cover the full breadth of knowledge and skills.
If a pupil is working below the pre-key stage standards, is not engaged in subject-specific study and has special educational needs, their statutory outcome should be reported using P Scales 1 to 4 when they have reached the end of year 2.
Pupils who are working below the lowest standard in one of the TA frameworks because they cannot communicate in English should be assessed using the pre-key stage standards.
Please be advised pre-key stage standards are not to be recorded for Science.
For further information on the pre-key stage standards for KS1 please see the below guidance:
How are these recorded on ScholarPack?
At present the ScholarPack team is working on adding the pre-key stage standards to Admin > Students > Statutory Assessment. Once these are added this guidance will be updated to reflect this and an email will be sent to all schools.
