It has been announced that an independent review panel has been set up to review primary and KS3 assessment. The review will consider current assessment procedures, statutory testing, the role of teacher assessment, transition between phases, accountability requirements and overall coherence.

The review will be led by a panel of heads and experts. Representatives from the DfE, Ofqual, Ofsted and the STA will also be invited to attend.
