Generating your Comparative DfE Assessment Results Report

The DfE specifies that schools must provide a report for parents for KS2 that includes:

  • Outcomes of statutory national curriculum TA in English reading, English writing, mathematics and science
  • A statement that TA outcomes take into account the results of statutory national curriculum tests in English reading and mathematics
  • Where appropriate, a statement explaining why any national curriculum test has not been taken
  • Comparative information about the attainment of pupils of the same age in the school
  • Comparative information about the attainment in the core subjects of pupils of the same age nationally, where available

As this is only a requirement from schools, not from their MIS, Arbor does not provide the last two data items in our out-of-the-box reports. However, we'll give you the tools you need to generate this report.

For more information about these requirements, take a look at the DfE's Key Stage 2 assessment and reporting arrangements guidance, specifically page 49.


How can we create this report?

  1. First, download the key stage 2 comparative report template from the DfE website. Click the report to download it and view it on your computer. Alternatively, you can create your own report.
  2. Next, look at the national data on the DfE website. The 2019 interim national data detailed in the DfE Key Stage 2 comparative report can be found here.
  3. Then, enter the national data and your individual school results onto the report you downloaded. 
  4. Finally, send this report out to your parents.
