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:

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 share information about the content and structure of the SATs with Year 6 parents. The powerpoint from our 2020 meeting is shared below.

Please note: The government has announced that in 2021, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, SATS in 2021 will not take place. Teachers will continue with their usual assessment procedures so that we can share attainment information with children, parents and with feeder secondary schools.

 

 

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! This video is the 2020 version and we will upload any updated videos as they become available. Please note that as well as their SATS test scores, parents will also receive a teacher assessment grade for your child's attainment in writing and science.

 

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