Pupils: Assessments

Volume 468: debated on Thursday 6 December 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families in which month secondary schools receive key stage 2 test results data for pupils entering the school in year 7. (165765)

The results of National Curriculum Key Stage 2 tests are included in the head teacher's annual report which forms part of the common transfer file of information which must be transferred between schools when pupils change schools. The Education (Pupil Information) (England) Regulations 2005 require that when a pupil changes schools, this file is sent to the receiving school no later than 15 school days after the day on which the pupil ceases to be registered at the old school. For most pupils entering secondary school, this will mean that the results will be transferred in September.
