Key Stage 2 SATs Results

During May, when the children are in Year 6, they complete tests in English and Maths (since 2010 there are no separate tests for Science).

The reading, spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPAG) and maths test papers are sent away to be marked externally and the writing levels are worked out through teachers’ assessments.  In previous years children were given an overall level for English but this is now separated into the three different areas; reading comprehension, writing and SPAG. The results are published in League Tables.  Previously, the National expectation was that children attain level 4 for these tests with level 5 being above average. Now these national curriculum levels have been replaced with new Age Related Expectations (ARE).

We are very proud of our children’s outstanding attainment, (which is well above the national averages each year) and the good progress that children make over time.
