Reception Baseline Assessment
Reception Baseline Assessment (RBA)
The Department of Education (DFE) have introduced a new EYFS framework, commencing September 2021. A new aspect of the EYFS framework is the Reception Baseline Assessment.
The Reception Baseline Assessment, or RBA is a short, interactive and practical assessment of your child’s early literacy, communication, language and mathematics skills when they begin in school. It will be undertaken with your child’s class teacher and will measure your child’s progress from Reception to Year 6. The teacher will be able to spend quality 1-1 time with your child, getting to know them and if they need any further support in certain areas. When your child reaches Year 6, you will be able to see the progress your child has made throughout their school journey.
If you wish to read further on the Reception Baseline Assessment, then you can find a useful parent booklet below-called Information for parents reception baseline assessment.
If you have any questions about the RBA, then please feel free to speak to your child’s class teacher
