The Junior School Collaboration (JUSCO) welcomes the announcement by the Department for Education that, with the introduction of reception baseline assessment, Junior schools will no longer have their progress measured from Key Stage One. We are pleased that the Department for Education, OFSTED and the National School Commissioner have engaged with JUSCO and have recognised the different challenges that Junior schools face; this is a positive example of the Department engaging with the profession in the best interests of our children. JUSCO now look forward to continued collaboration during the interim period and beyond.
JUSCO would like to take this opportunity to thank for their expertise and support:
Sean Harford - National Director of Education OFSTED
Liz Twist - NFER
Dave Thomson - Education Datalab
Jamie Pembroke - Sig Plus
James Bowen - NAHT
