National Tests - Parent Information

Year 6 and Year 2

The document below provides information for parents about the Year 6 and Year 2 SATs tests for this year. We are always available to talk through any aspect of the tests, so please do come into school if you would like to discuss anything further.

Year 1

In June, the Year 1 children are tested to find out how well they can read words using their phonics skills. Here is some information about this check. 

Year 4

While in Year 4, the children are tested to find out how well they remember the times tables. This is very important because, knowing times tables very well helps with all other maths learning. Without this knowledge, the rest of their maths learning will be slower. The document below gives more information about the check.
