Successful COBIS Lobbying Leads to Earlier Publication of Key Stage 2 National Curriculum Test Materials
Posted 05/11/2014 11:30AM

COBIS is delighted to announce that following successful lobbying, the Standards and Testing Agency has agreed to publish key stage 2 national curriculum test papers on the GOV.UK website on Monday 26 May 2015. Please see the official announcement from the Standards and Testing Agency below:

New publication date for 2015 key stage 2 national curriculum test materials

We had previously advertised that we would publish the 2015 key stage 2 national curriculum test materials in July 2015.

Following discussions with the Council of British International Schools (COBIS) we have agreed to publish the test papers on our section of the GOV.UK website on Monday 26 May 2015. This date is in line with previous distribution of hard copy materials, and after the testing period in England has been completed. The mark schemes will also be available on GOV.UK on Tuesday 23 June.

The phonics screening check materials will be published on GOV.UK on Monday 29 June, immediately after the check administration window closes in England.


ENDS

COBIS is delighted to announce these revised dates which will enable schools to access these tests prior to the school holidays, and would like to thank the Standards and Testing Agency for taking this action.
