Maintained schools and non-maintained special schools:

The requirements for annual reports are set out in this school report guidance for headteachers, and in the Education (Pupil Information) (England) Regulations 2005.


You must follow these requirements if your funding agreement contains the following clause, or a similar version:

"The academy trust must ... report on assessments as the secretary of state requires, or provide any information on assessments, on the same basis that maintained schools are required to provide the information."

This is taken from the DfE's model funding agreements.
