Year 6 SATs 2016

SATs Tests for Year 6 pupils will take place between Monday 9 May and Friday 13 May 2016

Please avoid taking your children out of school during this time and in the weeks leading up to the tests. Thank you

These tests in English and maths will reflect the new national curriculum, and are intended to be more rigorous. There will also be a completely new marking scheme to replace the existing national curriculum levels.

At the end of Year 6, children will sit tests in:

o    Reading 

o    Maths 

o    Spelling, punctuation and grammar


These tests will be both set and marked externally, and the results will be used to measure your child's progress and the school's performance. Your child’s marks will be used in conjunction with teacher assessment to give a broader picture of their attainment.  

Year 6 children will sit the KS2 SATs on week beginning Monday 9th May - Thursday 12th May. Unlike Key Stage 1 tests, which do not have strict time limits, the Key Stage 2 tests are strictly timed. 
The following chart gives the timetable for Key Stage 2 tests in 2016.
