1,500 Sats results investigated for potential cheating

According to Tes, Department for Education figures released yesterday show that 1,496 test results for key stage 2 have not been included in the 2019 results data because of these investigations.

A report from the DfE also reveals that there have been 132 results that have already been annulled because of confirmed maladministration and two more results annulled because pupils were cheating.

The Standards and Testing Agency runs a helpline for people to report concerns about how Sats or the phonics screening check have been administered and says it investigates all complaints.
