The government will not publish KS2 school level data for the 2021 to 2022 academic year. They have archived data from the 2018 to 2019 academic year because they recognise that the data from that year may no longer reflect current performance.

Schools are not required to publish their exam and assessment results from the 2021 to 2022 academic year, as these have not been published as performance measures by the Secretary of State.
