KS2 testing, off-site provision and school attendance

Important information about changes to all of these that governors should be aware of.

  • Changes to legislation, making it easier for maintained schools to direct a pupil to attend off-site provision to improve their behaviour, came into effect in January.
  • Revised advice on school attendance relating to pupil registers and attendance codes, the school day and year, and statutory guidance on education-related parenting contracts, parenting orders and penalty notices.
  • Key Stage 2 grammar, punctuation and spelling test will be taken in schools for the first time this year.
