End of Year 2 and end of Year 6 statutory assessments are commonly referred to as SATs, which is short for, 'Standard Attainment Tests.'
All children in Year 6 will sit their SATs in May, the papers are externally marked and the results are returned to the school in July. Children in Year 6, will sit a test for each of the following:
English Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling (Paper 1 Questions and Paper 2 Spellings)
Mathematics (Paper 1 Arithmetic, Paper 2 and 3 Reasoning)
All children in Year 2 sit their SATs in May. These tests are marked by the class teachers at the school and teacher assessment takes precedent over the written tests that the children have completed.
