Attainment Collections - Timetables for key dates

The Government has cancelled all statutory testing and data collection this year due to Covid-19.  Some national organisations (such as FFT) are offering to collect pupil data from schools instead.  As a Local Authority, we would like to confirm that we will not be collecting any assessment data from schools in Summer 2020.

2020 deadlines:

  • Key stage 2: Cancelled
  • Key stage 1: Cancelled
  • Yr 2 Phonics Check: Friday 11th December 2020
  • EYFSP: Cancelled
