Education and attainment data

This page contains key information for schools around the collection and analysis of assessment data. The focus will be on the statutory collections for Phonics.

Local Guidance

This local guidance compliments the statutory guidance published by the DfE in the Assessment and Reports Arrangements .

The main Assessment and Reporting Arrangements documents are available on the STA website.

Recording and Submission guidance

This file containing the assessments Phonics will be submitted to the LA via AnyComms+ which is supported by Link2ICT for all schools.


Schools should ensure they have appropriate support in place for the recording of the assessments and the export of the final data. Most schools will record the assessments in their MIS so this will be their school MIS support.

If you use any software not supported by Link2ICT or do not get your support from them you should check with your local IT provision that your software can record and export the data in the required format.


When we have received and processed your data for Phonics, we will provide you with reports that allow you to check the data before it is sent to the DfE. Once again the reports are to be published on Perspective Lite.
