Statutory guidance

Key stage 2: submitting teacher assessment data

This guidance is designed to be used as a step-by-step guide to support schools and local authorities when submitting data on the Primary Assessment Gateway.



Teacher assessment, including pre-key stage and engagement model, data must be submitted for every pupil who is:

  • registered to take a national curriculum test
  • registered as working below the overall standard of the tests

Schools can submit data directly to the Standards and Testing Agency using the Primary Assessment Gateway, or submit to the local authority if the local authority has agreed to submit it on the school’s behalf.
