Due to the challenging circumstances faced by schools in the context of the covid-19 pandemic, statutory introduction of the RBA has been postponed to Autumn 2021. Instead, schools have the opportunity to sign up to the RBA Early Adopter year.

Participation is optional, even after signing up. Data gathered from the Early Adopter year will not be used for the purpose of the progress measure.

The RBA is an activity-based assessment of pupils’ starting point in:

  • language, communication, and literacy
  • mathematics

The recruitment window for schools to sign up opens on 25 June and closes on 24 July 2020. Schools who choose to participate will receive assessment materials shortly before the October 2020 half term, with the optional assessment window opening for six-weeks after the October half term. Find out more here.

A podcast about the proposed reforms to the Statutory Framework for the EYFS.

The Dfe launched a consultation back in October and they want your views about the proposed changes. The consultation closes on the 31st January so I thought it would be useful to talk through the key proposals to support you for when you respond to the consultation.

For more podcasts, webinars and online courses covering a range of different topics please visit our Digital Resources page, here.

[tab title=”eyfs newsletter”]
