2021 Key Stage 2 Tests (SATs)

During the course of the year Mr Vokes’ class will be preparing for their SATs in May.  The 2021 tests are highly likely to be similar in their format to those in 2019 (the last year tested), although changes can never be ruled out!  As before, children will be given scaled scores where 100 is an indication that children have reached the expected standard. You will receive your child’s scaled score and an indication of how it relates to national standards across all schools.  Writing attainment will graded based on teacher assessments during the course of the year – it is not tested.

All the tests (Maths, Reading and Grammar Punctuation and Spelling) will take place during the week beginning Monday 10th May 2021.
