Guidance for headteachers, teachers and test administrators involved in administering the national curriculum tests.

This collection of webpages is the ‘test administration guidance’ (TAG).

  • administer the tests
  • access your school’s test results

Your school will also receive printed copies of the test administration instructions with the test materials. These are not available on GOV.UK as they contain live test material. Details on the format, equipment and assistance that must be used for each test is available in the key stage 2: test administration guidance.

You will also receive the ‘Attendance register and test script dispatch instructions’ with your stationery pack .
