Assessment KS2: statutory moderation

Last updated on 13 May 2022

Statutory assessment is returning in 2021/22, meaning that there will be new tests for Year 6 children to take in the summer term and schools will be required to submit teacher assessments for each child. A sample of schools will be externally moderated for KS2 writing to ensure consistency in the application of the teacher assessment standards.

All information about statutory requirements for assessment at KS2 can be found in the Assessment & Reporting Arrangements document, available from the Standards & Testing Agency (STA) website:

Gov.UK: 2022 key stage 2: assessment and reporting arrangements (ARA)

Please note, this year school results at KS2 will not be published in the public domain but will be released in the Analyse School Performance website (including the Inspection Data Summary Report).
