Reception Baseline Assessment ( RBA) - Link to leaflet in files below
Your children will be completing a short online assessment which has been made statutory in recent years. Teachers will work alongside your child to complete the activities on the screen. This lasts approximately 20 minutes. This data is not share or used at this stage, but answers are sent off to the Government to be used when the cohort leave year 6 as a progress measure. Staff are also completing their own Baseline activities, designed to settle your children into their play based learning and planned to understand how we can move your child's learning forwards.
