DFE cancel KS1 and KS2 Tests

SIMS Pay

KS1 & KS2 Assessments will not be going ahead for Summer 2021.

Primary Assessment

The department recognises that due to the further disruption caused by school closures, primary assessments cannot continue as intended. They have advised that they will be cancelling the statutory Key stage 1 and Key stage 2 tests and teacher assessments planned for summer 2021, including the key stage 2 tests in reading and mathematics.

The department has said that schools are able to continue to use assessment during the summer term to inform teaching, to enable them to give information to parents on their child’s attainment in their annual report and to support transition to secondary school. The DFE is strongly encouraging schools to do this.
