End of key stage assessment data collections

Key stage 1 and key stage 2 assessments

The national curriculum assessments due to be held in summer 2021, including tests, teacher assessments and the phonics screening check, have been cancelled.

Multiplication tables check

Schools can choose to administer the optional multiplication tables check within the 3-week period from Monday 7 June. Further guidance will be published in March 2021.

Early years foundation stage: Coronavirus disapplications

The early years foundation stage profile (EYFSP) assessment was not undertaken in the academic year 2019 to 2020.

In January 2021, in light of the introduction of new national restrictions, where schools should allow vulnerable children and children of critical workers to attend, the Secretary of State for Education decided that it will not be mandatory to complete the EYFSP assessment in 2021. However, the DfE will be requiring schools to use ‘best endeavours’ to undertake it.

Here is the DfE guidance on what schools need to do

Analysis and reports of primary assessment data for schools in 2021

In Summer 2020, the local authority offered to produce analyses/reports for schools who wanted them and submitted data to us for EYFSP and KS1. We also collected KS2 data to inform the Year 6 to 7 transition process, we also produced KS2 reports for primary schools based on this data.

We are currently in discussions about the offer for 2021 and will update this page soon with more details.

2021/22 academic year

The DfE have released information on dates relating to primary assessment for the 2021/22 academic year.
