On 2nd June the DfE published the 2017 performance attainment targets (P scales) and performance descriptors for pupils aged 5-16 with special educational needs (SEN).

The use of P scales is a statutory requirement for reporting teaching assessment to the DfE at the end of KS1 and KS2 for English, Maths and Science.  P scales can also be used as non-statutory guidelines for KS4 SEN pupils who cannot access the national curriculum.
