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 Secure Access, or by Egress Switch.

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

  • Year 1 and year 2 phonics - Friday, 22 June 2018
  • Key stage 1 (year 2) teacher assessments - Thursday, 28 June 2018
  • EYFS teacher assessments - Friday, 29 June 2018

About these dates: These dates are much later than usual, which is what the teaching unions have insisted on, but it leaves us less time to check your results and for schools to make any corrections to get everything uploaded to the DFE by the end of summer term, 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 NCA tools website by 5pm on Thursday, 28 June 2018.

About this date: The DfE will close the website for uploads on the 28th (5pm). You should aim to make your first attempt at uploading earlier in the week, in case there are any issues.
