The Education (Pupil Information) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2019 (SI 2019/959)

These Regulations amend the Education (Pupil Information) (England) Regulations 2005 (SI 2005/1437) (“the 2005 Regulations”).

These Regulations amend paragraph 6(1)(d) of Schedule 2 to the 2005 Regulations, which makes provision in respect of the information which must be contained within a pupil’s common transfer file (as defined in regulation 9 of the 2005 Regulations). A common transfer file contains information about a pupil which is to be transferred to a new school when the pupil changes school. Currently, paragraph 6(1)(d) only requires the results of national curriculum assessments taken at the end of a key stage to be added to the common transfer file. The effect of the amendment made by these Regulations is to require the results of all national curriculum assessments to be added to a pupil’s common transfer file, whether those assessments are taken at the end of a key stage or otherwise.
