Assessment and Attainment Information and Instructions for completing Assessment returns
Assessment in 2017
As yet we are still not aware of the details of the 2016 National Curriculum tests.
- Early Years Foundation Stage Profile is still required this year
- Phonics remains unchanged from last year
- KS1: remains unchanged from last year
- KS2: remains unchanged from last year
We have prepared the Assessment and Reporting Arrangements so that you are able to schedule your deadlines for submission to us at each of the Key Stages.
This year we have opted all Schools and Academies into our services for all of the keystages, as discussed at the Academy and School Network Meetings.
Details of the charges are outlined in the above document, but should you meet all of our set deadlines you will incur no more charges than;
- EYFSP: £1
- Phonics Year 1: £1
- Phonics Year 2: £1
- KS1: £1
- KS2 TA: £110
There are two deadlines for each of the above submission, one for the initial submission and one for the return of the signed summary form. If you miss either of these dates a late fee will be incurred which is frozen this year to £55. The most you will have to pay for each of the infant Key Stages is £111 and for KS2 the maximum fee will be £220.
The charges for this service remain the same as last year, and we have currently ‘opted in’ all schools to this service. We set the deadlines with potential late fees as there are many schools to co-ordinate. Should you wish to opt out please let us know using the method outlined below.
The initial deadline dates for each of the Key Stage Submissions are;
- EYFSP: 30th June
- Phonics (Years 1 and 2): 6th July
- KS1 TA: 29th June
- KS2 TA: 19th June
Following submission to the above deadlines you will be sent a report detailing the received submission. At this point you will also receive a further deadline and paperwork should you wish to resubmit any of your results, please read the emails that come out alerting you of details nearer the deadline dates. The LA deadlines are earlier than the National deadlines so that we have time to send you back reports detailing your submission, and for you to confirm that you are happy with the data as you have submitted it.
Should you want to opt out of any of these collections and you do not want us in the LA to moderate and check your submission please advise us by email to the appropriate address:
You will still be required to make your infant submissions via the LA in line with the national deadlines, instead of our LA ones, and we will not check your data or confirm your submission back to you prior to submission.
Please note that if you opt out at KS2 you will also have the responsibility of uploading your own KS2 TA results to the STA website, and that Information Management does not support use of this website.
