SATs Information

Key Stage 2

SATs (national curriculum tests) take place once a year for our Year 6 and Year 2 pupils.

If you have a child in year 6, they took national curriculum tests in English reading, English grammar, punctuation and spelling and mathematics. For this academic year, the key stage 2 tests are timetabled from Monday 11 May to Thursday 14 May 2020.

The tests help measure the progress pupils have made and identify if they need additional support in a certain area. The tests are also used to assess schools’ performance and to produce national performance data.

Key Stage 1

In Year 2, the end of Key Stage 1, pupils took tests in English reading and maths. The tests will support teachers to judge the standard at which your child is working at in English and maths. The KS1 tests take place over a four-week period, in 2019 they began on Thursday 1st May.

The Department of Education have produced an information booklet for parents, which can be downloaded using the link below.
