Statistics release announcement

Science sampling assessment at key stage 2 in England, 2014

Information on the outcomes of the 2014 science sampling assessment at key stage 2 in England.

Statistics release cancelled

Following a change of collection approach, the KS2 science results for 2014 aren't comparable with the previous published data. From 2016, a new methodology for attainment is being introduced that will mean the 2014 result will be revised to be on a consistent basis going forward. Therefore the standard KS2 science bulletin will be replaced by a methodology paper setting out the changes and the impact on the statistical series. Please see the STA website for further details:
