These are the deadlines for schools to submit their 2023 Key Stage Teacher Assessments to the Local Authority (and Primary Assessment Gateway (PAG) for KS2):


  • EYFSP to LA (via DfE sign-in s2s) by Friday 30 June 2023
  • Phonics Yr1 (and Yr2 retakes) to LA (via DfE sign-in s2s) by Friday 30 June 2023
  • Key Stage 1 to LA (via DfE sign-in s2s) by Tuesday 27 June 2023
  • Key Stage 2 to PAG by Friday 30 June 2023**


**This is the final date for schools to upload their KS2 Teacher Assessments to the PAG website. To give us chance to carry out validation and a thorough checking exercise with all schools before a final version of the data is submitted to the DfE, we would recommend that schools aim to load their KS2 Teacher Assessments as soon as possible in the week commencing 19 June 2023, and before the cut-off date of 30 June 2023.

It is also important to allow plenty of time for potential import queries, particularly following the experience of users of the Primary Assessment Gateway (PAG) last year. Experience in 2021/22 with PAG was extremely poor for schools and LA and this has resulted in some changes behind the scenes. STA have published a document on ‘lessons learnt’.

Thank you for your co-operation.
