Key stage 2: submitting teacher assessment data

Instructions for headteachers and local authorities about submitting key stage 2 teacher assessment data in 2018.


Key stage 2: submitting teacher assessment data


Teacher assessment (TA) is the main focus for statutory end of key stage 2 English writing assessment and reporting. Schools are also required to report TA outcomes for English reading, mathematics and science.

TA, including P scale data, should be submitted for every pupil who is:

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

Schools should use the correct codes when submitting data, as detailed in this document. Schools can submit data directly to STA using NCA tools or to the local authority (LA), if prior agreement has been reached for the LA to submit it on the school’s behalf.

All submissions must be made on NCA tools by Thursday 28 June.
