End of key stage assessment data collections

Schools have a statutory obligation to record assessment data for pupils at the end of every key stage. These key stages are:

  • Early years foundation stage EYFS (reception)
  • Key stage 1 year 1 phonics
  • Key stage 1 year 2 phonics re-test
  • Key stage 1 (year 2)
  • Key stage 2 (year 6)

You are required to send EYFS profile (EYFSP), year 1 and 2 phonics and key stage 1 (year 2) information electronically to the local authority (LA) securely, whether on S2S via DfE Sign-In, or by Egress Switch.

Schools to send the following data to the LA no later than the deadline dates:

  • Year 1 and year 2 phonics - Friday, 19 June 2020
  • Key stage 1 (year 2) teacher assessments - Thursday, 25 June 2020
  • EYFSP teacher assessments - Friday, 26 June 2020.
    The moderation manager has requested that schools submit their EYFSP outcomes by 19 June if possible to allow time for checking the data for moderated schools ahead of the statutory deadline.

Please note: These dates leave the LA with only a short time to check your results and for schools to make any corrections before everything needs to be uploaded to the DFE, so if you are able to send in your returns earlier it will give us more time to help you.

Key stage 2 (year 6) teacher assessments must be submitted directly to the DfE via the new Primary Assessment Gateway (which replaced NCA tools last year) by 5pm on Thursday, 25 June 2020.

Please note: This is the day the DfE will close the website for uploads. You should aim to make your first attempt at uploading earlier in the week, in case there are any issues.
