What are Key Stages?
The national curriculum is organised into blocks of years called ‘key stages’ (KS). At the end of each key stage, your child’s teacher will formally assess their performance to measure your child’s progress.
The school must report your child’s progress to you. This can happen in different ways, eg an end-of-term report or meetings at the school.
