Information re: Key Stage 2 Checking Exercise 2016

Please note that DfE will make amendments to the guidance relating to discounting pupils from KS2 in 2016

The DfE will amend its instructions to the data contractor for the KS2 Performance Tables (RM Education) to say that, if a child has arrived in a school any time from 11 April 2016, they should automatically accept that request. That will be reflected in the checking exercise guidance that DfE make available to schools.

Requests of this nature should be submitted for ‘other’ reasons and would normally relate to those pupils who started in year 6 from another UK school.  Pupils for whom you would apply for discounting under the two year, recently arrived from abroad ‘rule’ should be submitted as in previous years, with relevant supporting evidence.
