SATs Week : Week beginning13th May 2024
During May in Year, 6 children undertake National Curriculum Test (commonly known as SATs) in English Reading, SPaG and Mathematics. These provide records of attainment in the subjects, including standardised scores which enable school, local and national comparisons. In addition, teachers are required to provide teacher assessments in English writing and Science.
|Monday||Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation (45 minutes) and Spelling test (15 minutes)|
|Tuesday||Reading Paper (60 minutes)|
|Wednesday||Arithmetic Paper (30 minutes) Maths Reasoning Paper 2 (40minutes)|
|Thursday||Maths Reasoning Paper 3 (40minutes)|
The SATs results are reported nationally and to your child’s next school. Secondary schools then use the results, together with their own assessments, to set targets for Years 7, 8 and 9. It is important that your child’s SAT assessments are an accurate reflection of your child’s ability to ensure that they are challenged/supported in the right sets in their next school.
