Local Authorities are required to carry out monitoring visits of schools before, during and after the KS2 test week. These visits form part of our statutory requirements to monitor the effective administration of national curriculum tests.
Please ensure you have read the Key Stage 2 Assessment and Reporting Arrangements (ARA) and
other documentation relating to the administration of KS2 tests (on BSO in the resources section of the assessment area) and that all members of staff involved in administering the tests have been trained appropriately.
Please also ensure all paperwork including evidence for extra time is available for a visitor to read should your school be part of the sample of schools this year.
There is also a good practice checklist on BSO in the resources area of the assessment section which will be useful to refer to.
If you require further details about monitoring visits please contact Alison Philipson on
firstname.lastname@example.org or 07582 109 288.
