Exam and Assessment Detail:
SATs (Standard Assessment Tests) are the tests taken by Year 6 and Year 2 children at the end of their time in Key Stages 2 (KS2) and 1 (KS1) respectively. We ensure that these tests are not stressful for our children.
KS2 Year 6 SATs
The Department for Education (DfE) sets a week in May for all children nationally in Year 6 to take their formal SATs tests. They cover the core subjects of:
English (reading tests and a Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling test)
Maths (written tests)
The papers are sent away to be marked, with results returned in time to share with the children and their parents/carers; before they leave primary school in July.
The children’s writing is gathered in an evidence portfolio and their ‘level’ is assessed by the class teacher; who submits this ‘level’ to the DfE.
KS1 Year 2 SATs
SATs week takes place during May. These formal tests inform teacher assessments and judgements as to what level of ability children are working at. Each child is assessed in:
Writing (including spelling and writing)
Grammar and punctuation
Maths (including number, shape, space and measurement)
Year 1 Phonic Screening Check:
The DfE Year 1 Phonic Screening Check is a formal test that takes place in June. The children complete the screening individually in our Positive Play room with their class teacher. They are asked to read (de-code) 40 words; 20 real words and 20 nonsense (pseudo) words. This screening test assesses whether they have met the national requirement in using their phonic knowledge to read; and these results are shared with parents in their child’s end of year report.
