Baseline assessment guidance

Early Education – Early Education and TACTYC have reviewed the six baseline schemes accredited by the Department for Education, and our considered recommendation remains that schools should not introduce a baseline scheme at all … Nevertheless, we recognise that many headteachers feel under pressure to introduce a scheme, and we have therefore reviewed all six schemes strengths and weaknesses against the principles of good assessment practice in the EYFS.  The results can be found in our downloadable guidance.
