The Standards and Testing Agency (STA) has published the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), key stage one (KS1) and key stage two (KS2) assessment and reporting arrangements (ARAs) for the 2017 to 2018 academic year.
These ARAs include important dates for 2017/18 and guidance on 2018 national curriculum tests, test participation, teacher assessment, and legal requirements and responsibilities.
See the assessment and reporting arrangements for EYFS, KS1 or KS2.
The order of the KS2 tests in the 2018 test timetable is different from previous years. Schools must administer the KS2 English grammar, punctuation and spelling test on Monday 14 May and the English reading test on Tuesday 15 May.
KS2 test results will be available in the 'Pupil results' section of NCA tools
from 7.30am on Tuesday 10 July, not from midnight as in previous years.
