In Year 2 and Year 6, pupils sit the National SATs tests in English and Maths. New assessments have been introduced for the children reflecting the move from National Curriculum levels.  We will ensure all parents and carers are updated with assessment information throughout Year 2 and Year 6. In Year 2, children are assessed by their teacher in reading, writing, speaking and listening, numeracy and science. Information on their progress in these subjects is provided to all parents and carers.

In Year 6 pupils access a range of intervention activities to allow them to achieve their best in the test. This includes small group teaching to allow children to access level 6 teaching delivered by a secondary specialist. The portfolios they create in these sessions are submitted to demonstrate their ability to write at level 6. In addition, pupils who are between levels have targeted small group teaching to allow them to achieve their best.

SATs tests in Year 6 are in Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPAG), reading comprehension and numeracy. Pupils are provided with the resources and guidance to revise with parental support in preparation for the tests and regular updates of progress are given throughout these important years.
