Adding Key to Success data for KS4 imports - England

If you do not already have your KS2 scores calculated and saved locally, you can download a Key to Success file from the DfE, using the student UPNs. Connect Data will read this file, and calculate either the KS2 Fine Scores or the KS2 Scaled Scores, depending upon the Academic Year and Year Group specified.

To import your Key to Success file, launch the + Prior Attainment wizard from the Year Group summary bar.


Import your Key to Success file and click Next. The scores will be calculated for you, and will be matched to your students present in the selected Year Group using the UPN.

In order for this import to be successful please ensure you have imported your UPNs under the specific UPN column header in your student data.
