National Curriculum tests

Primary schools are required to carry out Statutory assessments of children’s abilities at 4 different points.  Parents/carers are informed of the results at the end of the academic year in which the assessments are carried out: 

Reception - GLD

At the end of Reception, children are assessed against 'Early learning goals'.  If a pupil has attained well they are described as having a “Good level of development” (GLD).

Year 1 - phonics

Children in Year 1 are tested on their ability to link sounds and letters when reading. This is known as phonics screening. An information pack for parents can be accessed via the following link:

Year 2 and year 6 - SATs

 

SATS (standard assessment tests) are a series of assessments in reading, GPS (grammar, punctuation and spelling) and maths carried out in two stages during your child’s primary education - at the end of year 2 (Key Stage 1) and again at the end of year 6 (Key Stage 2).  Writing and science are also assessed but this is done through teacher assessment rather than tests.
