It is that time of year again! Children in Year 6 will be taking their SATs tests this week. SATs stands for Statutory Assessment Tests. These tests are more formal than those taken in KS1 and have set test days as well as external marking. Children will take tests in reading comprehension, grammar, punctuation, spelling, mathematical reasoning, and arithmetic. All the children in Year 6 have been working hard to prepare for these tests and I would like to wish them the best of luck this week.
Children in Year 2 have also been taking tests over the past few weeks. The results are used by teachers to help them come to a judgment about the children’s achievement in reading, writing and mathematics.
Year 1 children will also be tested this term to determine whether they have reached the expected level in their phonics. This takes place in June.
We let parents know how their children have got on in their annual report except in Year 6 when we receive the results in the last week of term. The children’s achievements are sent out in the middle of the final week.
