Here you will find free practitioner resources to download to help with running Talk Boost KS1.


The Talk Boost KS1 Tracker bandings have been updated. Visit our Trackers page  or click on the Talk Boost KS1 Tracker Tab webpage to know more (2022).

As part of the evidence-led approach to all our work we review our data from time to time.  As the new online scoring system for our Talk Boost KS1 intervention has now been running for a year we have reviewed the data and made an adjustment to the bandings.  This has resulted in some adjusted bandings which you will see reflected in the summary graphs for the KS1 tracker data.  We have made this adjustment to the online system and have revised the printed and online content. 



The questions and scoring in TBKS1 have not changed and you still undertake the assessment in the same way as previously. The bandings on the online tracker are automatically readjusted and so if you are entering scores online then there is no need for you to do anything, the system will automatically calculate the scores and assign them Red/Amber/ Green. 

If you are manually calculating the scores using the paper versions of the tracker then you will need to use the updated versions, which can be found here:  

TBKS1 Reception Tracker

TBKS1 Year 1 Tracker

TBKS1 Year 2 Tracker

These PDFs can be printed and placed into your Teacher / Intervention Manual to replace the ones currently there. Please note that for the online tracker these changes work retrospectively, so any reports that have been generated previously will now be recalculated using the new bandings. 

Some FAQs on these amends can be found here

Please note that the bandings for the other trackers (ETB, TBKS2) have not changed and remain the same.
