Primary Steps

An easy to use observation-based assessment framework for primary schools

Curriculum: Primary National Curriculum - Key stages 1 & 2
Connecting Steps assessment framework: Primary Steps


B Squared has created Primary Steps for the assessment of pupils who are working towards end of year outcomes in an infant, junior or primary setting. Used within our Connecting Steps assessment software, this framework has been designed to help teachers to identify and record the ongoing achievements of pupils who are in Key Stage 1 or Key Stage 2 and working at or around age-related expectations in most areas of their development.

Primary Steps covers the following subjects

B Squared is providing these frameworks in three subject packs to allow you to choose the areas which best help your school to meet the needs of your pupils.

Core Subjects
English Maths Science
Plus Subjects
Computing Physical Education PSHE
Foundation Subjects
Art & Design Design & Technology Geography
History Languages Music

Reducing teacher workload

B Squared’s education experts have spent a long time refining the content of Primary Steps to reduce the workload for teachers, whilst ensuring that pupil progress milestones are still recognised.

Connecting Steps enables our teachers to clearly track, monitor and report on pupil progress at all levels of attainment without the traditional accompanying reams of paper and hours of filling it in.

Making assessment inclusive

If your school is looking for an assessment solution to use with both mainstream and SEN pupils in a Primary setting, then Primary Steps will work well for you. It includes the end of year outcomes for pupils working at Age Related Expectations as well as the first 3 levels of our Progression Steps for pupils working below Year 1.  This covers the ability range of pupils formerly assessed as being upper-end of P4, through to the end of Key Stage 2 expectations. This makes Primary Steps ideal for schools wanting to record comparable data and report pupil progress in the same way for both mainstream and SEND pupils.
