The Government has announced that it will not publish any school or college level educational performance data based on tests, assessments or exams for 2020, due to Coronavirus (COVID-19).
As part of steps taken to fight the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), the Government announced that all exams that were due to take place in schools and colleges in England in summer 2020 would be cancelled and that it will not publish any school or college level educational performance data based on tests, assessments or exams for 2020. The DfE’s priority was to work with awarding organisations and Ofqual to ensure that students who were due to take exams in summer 2020 were awarded grades that were as fair as possible so they could move on as planned to the next stage of their lives.
School, college or MAT level performance data
School, college or multi-academy trust (MAT) level performance data based on summer 2020 tests, assessments and exams at any phase will not be published.
School, college or MAT level accountability measures, such as Progress 8 and level 3 value added, using the summer 2020 data will not be published or shared.
DfE performance tables that were due to be released in October and December 2020, and in January and March 2021, will not go ahead.
Institution-level qualification achievement rates will not be published in the national achievement rate tables for the 2019 to 2020 academic year.

Assessment is an integral part of teaching and learning and is a process teachers carry out in every lesson they teach to inform the next steps for the children’s learning and development. Schools are required to assess the children formally at the end of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), the end of Key Stage 1 (KS1) and the end of Key Stage 2 (KS2). Another statutory assessment is the Year 1 Phonics Screening Check which assesses the children’s ability to decode real and non-real words.
At the end of each key stage, teachers are required to undertake both formal and informal assessments of the progress made by pupils. The informal testing is known as teacher assessment and is an important part of the process because it uses judgements made from on-going assessments, taken over the whole academic year. Teachers make informal assessments every time they teach a class, and they will use these judgements to plan what the children need to learn next. The formal tests are knows as Standard Assessment Tests (SATs) which are produced nationally and are taken by all children in the country at the end of KS1 and KS2.

The Department for Education (DfE) produce Performance Tables which give information on the achievements of pupils in primary, secondary and 16-18 provision in schools and colleges, and how they compare with other schools in the Local Authority (LA) area and in England as a whole.
Detailed information and guidance on the various aspects of the tables can be found on the DfE website.
