Assessment Data Statutory Collections

Assessment Data Statutory Collections

All schools and academies are required to submit assessment data to the Local Authority (LA) for each eligible pupil for the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile, and Year 1 Phonics check (including Year 2 Phonics rechecks where required).  Key Stage 2 Teacher Assessments need to be submitted via the Primary Assessment Gateway.

From 2024, submission of KS1 Teacher Assessments is optional.

For 2024 collections schools are asked to submit results by the following dates:

EYFSP Monday 17th June +

Phonics Screening Check Friday 14th June *

KS1 Teacher Assessment (optional) Friday 5th July

* 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 23rd June.

+ We will accept data from schools, including any amendments to correct errors, up until 24th June.  However please note that any schools submitting their initial return after 17th June will not receive a data checking pack or summary results file.

Key Stage 2 (Teacher Assessments) need to be submitted on the Primary Assessment Gateway by Friday 28th June

CTF submission files

Schools will need to use Assessment Manager in SIMS, or an alternative Management Information System (MIS), in order to record and export their 2024 results and detailed guidance notes should be made available to schools by their MIS support provider.  If you use another package just for assessment and tracking that produces end of key stage results (e.g. Target Tracker) then you should export the results from these packages and import the results into your MIS - 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.

Further information on each key stage is available through the School Bulletin.


How to submit your files

Files need to be submitted to the LA using the AnyComms Plus secure file transfer system.

Once logged on ( select the upload files to the LA option, browse to locate the saved ctf file you created, then select either File Type EYFSP Results, Phonics check results or KS1 Results and select the destination service SMST- Performance data. Click the Upload all files button. Repeat for each of the other ctf files you created.



We work with MIS support providers to run data collection seminars and provide guidance notes for schools.  Guidance notes on the use of your MIS are available from your particular support provider, but the slides outlining requirements, key deadlines and dates, codesets etc are available at the bottom of this page.

The Bucks ICT Schools Team webinar can be booked via this link.

Key contacts for each collection are available in the bulletin and are included on the slides.  Alternatively please contact us via  -

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