The Key stage 2 science sampling test framework was released in draft format in March.
It confirmed that statutory key stage 2 science sampling tests will continue in summer 2016.
The test will not be taken by whole cohorts. Instead a sample of approximately 9,500 children will be randomly selected, based on five children from 1,900 schools. Schools that are selected will have a statutory obligation to participate.
