This note summarizes the results of the "Workshop on Polarisation and Beam Energy Measurements at the ILC", held at DESY (Zeuthen) April 9-11 2008. The topics for the workshop included (i) physics requirements, (ii) polarised sources and low energy polarimetry, (iii) BDS polarimeters, (iv) BDS energy spectrometers, and (v) physics-based measurements of beam polarisation and beam energy from collider data. Discussions focused on the current ILC baseline programme as described in the Reference Design Report (RDR), which includes physics runs at beam energies between 100 and 250 GeV, as well as calibration runs on the Z-pole. Electron polarisation of P_e- >~ 80% and positron polarisation of P_e+ >~ 30% are part of the baseline configuration of the machine. Energy and polarisation measurements for ILC options beyond the baseline, including Z-pole running and the 1 TeV energy upgrade, were also discussed.
