There does not seem to be a consensus on what needs to be reported to parents this year which is not helpful to us as staff (and frustrating to me as a parent!), so I thought I would share an extract from "The Key". Unfortunately though there is no indication of when regs will be updated or something useful to this effect posted on gov.uk ( or elsewhere). The first section we all know, but the second section, especially the bit underlined in italics, explains how should be applied for new KS2 SATS from 2016. Hope this is useful folks. "Reporting KS2 results to parents: requirements The Standards and Testing Agency (STA) publishes statutory guidance on assessment and reporting arrangements (ARA) for Key Stage (KS) 2. Section 11 of the guidance explains: The reports must include results of any National Curriculum tests ... ..The guidance also says that where appropriate, the reports must include results of any National Curriculum tests or public examinations. If National Curriculum test results are not available by the end of the summer term, they must be provided to parents within 15 school days of the headteacher receiving them. The STA notes that requirements for academies are set out in their funding agreements. KS2 ARA, GOV.UK – STA https://www.gov.uk/guidance/2016-key-stage-2-assessment-and-reporting-arrangements-ara Information included in reports: requirements Regulations will be amended to reflect changes A representative from the DfE told us that the regulations will be amended to reflect the removal of National Curriculum levels and the new approach to assessing pupils at the end of KS1 and KS2. This will include an amendment to reflect that there is no national assessment at the end of KS3. We will update this article when the amended regulations are published. If you would like to be notified when this article is updated, please click the 'Save for later' link at the upper right-hand side of this page. Schedule 1 of The Education (Pupil Information) (England) Regulations 2005 explains that schools must report the results of any National Curriculum test taken during that year, "by level". We asked the STA how results should be reported now that National Curriculum levels have been removed. A representative explained that at the end of KS2, maintained schools must report the following test results to parents: The pupil's raw scores The pupil's scaled scores Whether the pupil has attained the expected standard He added that schools can report comparative information about the attainment of pupils within the school by reporting the percentages of pupils who are working towards, at, or above the expected standard. We also asked the representative how schools can meet the requirement to report a comparison of their pupils' attainment with national results, without using levels. He said that the expected standard, which is 100, is set by the STA based on national data. By reporting whether pupils are working towards, at or above the expected standard, schools are comparing their pupils’ results to the national standard. He explained that schools are not expected to report separate information about their pupils' attainment compared to national attainment in 2016, as national statistics for the end of KS2 tests will not be released until the autumn term."
