For additional information on producing the reports using the wizard process, we recommend reading this guide in conjunction with the “End of Key Stage Data Processing (England) Handbook.

The SIMS Customer Success Team has developed a series of reports to assist primary school leaders, governors and any other relevant stakeholders to analyse statutory Key Stage data in line with the DfE Primary Accountability Measures 2018 updated December 2018 and Revised 2018 National Figures from Statistics at DfE – Department for Education.

End of Year Processes


New documentation is available to support your End of Year and Creating New Academic Year procedures.  

You can find this information within SIMS via the Documentation Centre link on the Home Page.




•    The Summary version provides a useful reminder for those who have carried out these processes several times before.

•    The Detailed version will provide you with clear step by step details and is recommended if you are new or have only carried these processes occasionally. 


These handbooks can be found in SIMS via the Documentation Centre link on your SIMS Home Page. Alternatively, you can click here to access.

It is critical that the new academic year is created and promotion routines run before the old year ends. These processes determine the year groups and registration groups into which pupils are placed in the new academic year. We therefore suggest you start these processes as early as possible, allowing sufficient time to complete by the start of the new academic year.
