Standard Assessment Tests (SAT's)

28th April 2017
All state primary school children are examined at the end of Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. This is done via a Standard Assessment Test (SAT). The SAT examinations help to identify a student’s key academic strengths and weaknesses and help local authorities and the government to determine which schools are struggling or doing well. In most cases, secondary schools will base Year 7 set information on year 6 SAT scores. Children are tested on what they have learned over the course of their school years; and the examinations cover topics such as reading, maths, punctuation and grammar.
Year 6 Assessments (w/c 8th May)
The Year 6 SAT examinations can be a highly stressful time for both parents and children. As a parent, it is important to realise that these tests do not involve a pass or fail, they are just a way of determining how well your child has understood the information they’ve learned at primary school. The more relaxed both you and your child are, the better they will perform. Only 3 full school days to go...
Year 2 Assessments
We will carry out the Year 2 National Tests during the last two week’s of this half term (weeks commencing 15th and 22nd May) so the children can fully enjoy their half term holiday.
Thank you to everyone for your continuing support.
