Assessment Data Statutory Collections

Assessment Data Statutory Collections

For 2019 collections schools are asked to send end of Key Stage results, including the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile (EYFSP) and the Phonics Screening Check, to the School Management Support Team (SMST) by the following dates:

EYFSP Monday 17th June +

Phonics Screening Check Monday 17th June *

Key Stage 1 Wednesday 19th June +

Key Stage 2 (Teacher Assessments) Wednesday 19th June +

* Schools need to return their phonics check results files by this date, but the LA will accept amendments for pupils who were absent during the main Phonics Check week up until 21st June.

+ We will accept data from schools, including any amendments to correct errors or as a result of moderation, up until 24th June.  However please note that any schools submitting their initial return after 17/19th June will not receive a data checking or summary files.

Assessment Manager

Schools will need to use Assessment Manager in SIMS in order to record and export their 2019 results and detailed guidance notes will be made available to schools by their SIMS support provider.  If you use another package for assessment and tracking that produces end of key stage results (e.g. eprofile, Target Tracker) then you should export the results from these packages and import the results into SIMS - this ensures that the results are held as part of the student record and can be included in CTFs when a pupil transfers between schools.

Schools not using SIMS are advised to ensure that their chosen Management Information System (MIS) is able to export the results in the required DfE format - please contact the SMT if you need help confirming this.

Further information on each key stage is available through the School Bulletin.  The SMST also works with SIMS support providers (BCC and Turn IT On) to run data collection seminars for schools.  Guidance notes on the use of SIMS are available from your particular support provider, but the slides outlining requirements, key deadlines and dates, codesets etc will be made available below by the end of May.

Key contacts for each collection are available in the bulletin and will be included on the slides.  Alternatively please contact the School Management Support Team  - smst@buckscc.gov.uk or 01296 382640.

At the beginning of May we ran Assessment and Reporting Arrangement Briefings for headteachers and assessment leads.  The slides from these sessions are available below.
