2019 KS1/KS2 Access Arrangements and KS2 Timetable Variation


The Standards and Testing Agency (STA) has published access arrangements guidance for the 2019 KS1 and KS2 national curriculum tests.

In 2019, schools do not need to notify the STA if they are administering a KS2 test to a pupil at an alternative location.  The 2019 timetable variation guidance explains how schools can vary the start time of a KS2 test on the scheduled test day or apply for permission to administer a KS2 test up to five school days later.
