Assessment

Assessment

Under the national assessment guidelines, children are assessed as working towards the expected standard, working at the expected standard or working in greater depth.

In order to provide parents/carers with information as to what is expected at the end of each year, we have prepared National Curriculum Expectation booklets for each year group, which are available on the school website. Please visit the 'National Curriculum Expectations' page or click below to follow the links:

Parent/Carer Guide to the National Curriculum and the expected level of attainment for English and Maths in Year 3

Parent/Carer Guide to the National Curriculum and the expected level of attainment for English and Maths in Year 4

Parent/Carer Guide to the National Curriculum and the expected level of attainment for English and Maths in Year 5

Parent/Carer Guide to the National Curriculum and the expected level of attainment for English and Maths in Year 6

Assessment at the End of Key Stage 2

At the end of Key Stage 2, pupils at our school undertake SATs tests and assessments.

Each year we hold a meeting for Year 6 parents to share information about the content and structure of the SATs. The powerpoint shared at the 2017 meeting is shared below.

 

 

Please find below a short video that shares more information about the Key Stage 2 tests and what parents/carers can do to support your child at home. We want to work with you to help your child to prepare well for their end of Key Stage 2 tests, whilst also ensuring children are not concerned about their tests, and still have plenty of time to rest, relax and play!

 

Exemplification materials have been published to highlight what each stage looks like in practice. Please click on the links below to view these:
