Standard task assessment: English and mathematics

5.—(1) It shall be the duty of the head teacher to make arrangements for each pupil to be assessed in English and mathematics by the administration of tasks and tests (referred to hereinafter as “standard tasks”) in accordance with the provisions of this article, and such an assessment shall be known as a “standard task assessment”.

(2) Standard tasks for which provision is made by the Secretary of State pursuant to article 10 shall be administered to the pupil during the period comprising the spring term and the summer term (except the last four weeks thereof) in accordance with the provisions of the document in which they are published(1).

(3) An assessment based on the pupil’s performance in each standard task shall be made, and a record of the results made, not later than four weeks before the end of the summer term.

(4) Subject to paragraph (5), the record of the results shall consist of a statement of the pupil’s level of attainment in each relevant AT or, if the document in which the standard tasks are published so requires, a statement of the pupil’s level of attainment in the subject determined in accordance with the provisions of that document or, if that document so requires, both such statements.

(5) Where in the case of English at least one relevant AT does not apply in relation to a pupil, no record of the pupil’s level of attainment at that AT shall be determined.

(6) In paragraphs (4) and (5) “relevant AT” means any AT in which the standard tasks enable achievements to be assessed.

(7) As soon as reasonably practicable after standard task assessments have been administered to pupils pursuant to sub-paragraph (1), the head teacher shall provide the local education authority with a signed statement, confirming that those standard task assessments were administered in accordance with the provisions of the document in which they were published(1).
