PIVATS Milestones and the Pre-Key Stage Standards
Following the government's review of statutory assessment arrangements for pupils in primary schools working below the standards of national curriculum assessments, we can confirm that PIVATS continues to be a viable assessment tool and have produced the following guidance.
PERFORMANCE INDICATORS FOR VALUED ASSESSMENT & TARGETED LEARNING
Assessment of learning, performance monitoring and effective target setting for pupils well below national expectations for their age.
Raising standards of achievement within an inclusive education system is an essential expectation for all pupils. All young people in our schools have the right to receive an education of the highest quality which is appropriate to their needs and aptitudes. They should have every opportunity to develop skills which will help them to contribute effectively to an increasingly complex and changing society. They should achieve their full potential, regardless of special educational needs or disabilities, social or other contextual factors - and their achievements should be recognised.
We can raise attainment by working with all the stakeholders and agencies in education and by our commitment to implement coherent approaches to improvement and change. Assessing small steps of attainment, setting challenging but realistic targets and tracking pupil achievement and progress are essential to this process.
PIVATS provides a structured approach to assessing, planning for learning, tracking and measuring small steps in attainment, focusing within the PIVATS structure on small steps within the P scales up to the revised national curriculum Y4 age related expectations.
