Statutory Assessments

SATs (Statutory Assessment Tests)
Every year, children in Years 2 and 6 carry out statutory assessment tests.
This year the children will be tested in Reading, Maths and S.P.A.G (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) with class teachers assessing their writing levels using a range of work they have completed within the classroom.
The tests in Year 2 will take place during the month of May – more information will follow.
The tests in Year 6 will take place during the week beginning Monday 13th May 2024- Thursday 16th May 2024.
It is important that all children attend school during these times.
As discussed with parents at parents evening, please find below additional information and support documents on how you can help your child at home. If you have any more questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.

Multiplication Tables Check

Year 4 children will be taking the Multiplication tables check in June of this year. The purpose of the check is to determine whether pupils can fluently recall their times tables upto 12, which is essential for future success in mathematics. For more information please click the button below.

Reception Baseline Assessment (RBA)

The Reception Baseline Assessment (RBA) is a statutory assessment from September 2021 onwards. It provides a snapshot of where pupils are when they arrive at school. It will provide a starting point to measure the progress schools make with their pupils between reception and the end of primary school.

Phonics Screening Check

The Phonics Screening Check is a test for children in Year 1. Children take it during June in a one-to-one setting with a teacher. Whilst children learn phonics to help them with both word reading and spelling, the Phonics Screening Check only tests their skills at word reading. This is sometimes called decoding.

Children will be assessed and those who do not achieve the standard in June will re-sit the Phonics Screening Check the following year.
