We keep for six years.

We keep ours initially to check for marking errors, then in case a subject leader wants to do an analysis. At my current school they are kept forever manly because nobody ever bothers to throw them out.

To my knowledge there is no minimum or maximum.

Thanks guys, an interesting range of opinions! Last year I wanted to go through ours as a subject leader but discovered by accident that they had been shredded by the end of term. It just seemed a little quick to me!

No rules that I know of about keeping them. A couple of years ago on a training session (run by an LA Advisor) it was suggested that we take the front cover off last year's Maths papers and then give them to children for them to identify the mistakes/misconceptions.

No school I've worked in has had the space to store papers for more than a year - they stay in a cupboard until next year's papers come back and then they are shredded to make room for them.

I got the papers back for both my children at the end of term - this was a while ago, so the rules may have changed since then.

All to be kept for 5 years I think.

Can anyone tell me what the rules are about schools keeping KS2 sats papers after they are returned to the school. How long do they need to be kept? Do they keep them all or just a sample?
