Key Stage Assessments and MTC data check Summer 2023

As in previous years, we will be collecting Key Stage 1 teacher assessments, Year 1 Phonics, Year 2 Phonics re-takes and submitting to the DfE for all schools.

For Key Stage 2 teacher writing assessments, we will again submit results on your behalf to Primary Assessment Gateway.

Please send us all data files via DfE s2s by the dates below and email to inform us you have done so.


22nd June Midday

LA deadline for Phonics, KS1 and KS2 TAs

We strongly encourage earlier submission, where possible, particularly for KS2 TAs, to give us time to process the results and make the usual checks.

Please note the KS2 teacher assessments in reading and maths will no longer be collected for pupils working at the standard of the national curriculum assessments.

Please see the table below:

Key Stage 2 standard

Once you have submitted your data files to us, you will need to log in to Perspective Lite, as per the previous year, to check and confirm your summary data.

The School Improvement team have requested we collect Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check (MTC) data this year, this is not a statutory data collection. The DfE have made a results file available for schools to download and send to the LA via s2s. MTC results will be available on the MTC service on 26th June and are requested to share this with us.

LA deadline for MTC data

Contact your SIMS Support (usually 3BM 020 7605 8322) if you have SIMS issues.

Please contact me if you have any queries.

From Friday 12th May 2022, LAs begin informing schools if they will receive an external moderation visit.  If you have not received notification by Friday 19th May 2022, you may assume your school will not be moderated.
