We are also aware that, as a result of the decision to cancel the assessments, the STA confirmed in correspondence with local authorities on 19 March that local authorities would be relieved of their statutory duties to monitor and moderate.
We accept that the Department for Education will need to amend secondary legislation.
We welcome and support that this means the cancellation of the following assessments between April and July in 2020:
Phonics screening check (in Years 1 and 2)
Key Stage 1 tests and teacher assessments
Year 4 multiplication tables check
Science sampling test
Key Stage 2 tests and teacher assessments
All statutory trialling
Full response to consultation
