Headteachers have a statutory obligation under the Education Act 2002 to complete and submit the headteacher’s declaration form. It must be completed by the headteacher or a delegated senior member of staff in order to confirm that their school has fully complied with the statutory arrangements for assessing children at the end of Key Stage 2.
The headteacher’s declaration form will be available on the Pupil registration section of the NCA tools website from 5pm on Thursday 16 May 2013.
The form must be completed after all test scripts have been collected for marking. The deadline for submitting the headteacher’s declaration form is Friday 24 May 2013.
If for any reason the headteacher, or delegated senior member of staff, cannot complete the headteacher’s declaration form, they should notify the National Curriculum assessments helpline on 0300 303 3013.
