Call out to science leaders please. What do schools have to submit regarding science?

    What information do primary schools have to submit regarding science at each key stage? I know that at the end of reception they have to submit the ELG in UW but does a school have to submit any data for key stage 1 and 2 now?
    I know the optional SATS in science are every 2 years and if you get chosen the data is anonymous ( schools are not names).
    Anyone offer any advice please?

    We had a coding system last year for working towards , expected etc. and it was just handed into the school office on a sheet and sent off to the big data monster at the local authority.

    Before that it was a levels grid where a teacher judgement as made and submitted with other TA data collections to the authority.

    Ummm isn't it a bit late to be asking this now?

    Surely schools work towards this all year?

    Sorry, should have made it clearer in my question. Yes got information for formative and summative assessment info for science throughout the academic year, just want clarification on what needed to to be given over to the LEA if any. Just a comment someone made the other day about having to give data for RAISE online purposes and I have not had to do this , queried it with the others and said no.

    Really? You mean they don't just make it up?

    Your friend may have been talking about the return schools make to validate the RAISE/Ofsted Dashboard data. This is unrelated to the initial reporting of Science TAs.

    Oh yes, everyone makes those judgments; all the individual statements, for every child! Of course they do :)

    I repeat, it is now very late to suddenly wonder what data to collect and how.
    @Pomz just confirmed this should have been started months ago.

    Or your year six teacher can just make it up!
