Essential Outcomes 2021

Due to Covid and children learning at home, there have been changes to the way schools will assess progress and attainment this year.

Working with Brighton and Hove, schools are using a county–wide document which has streamlined the essential outcomes that each year group needs to focus on to give children the capacity to access the following year group’s curriculum. 

Please find the Essential Outcomes below.
