End of Key Stage 2 Assessments (SATs)

The KS2 Statutory Assessment Tasks and Tests (SATs) will return this year after being cancelled for the past two years as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

SATs are standardised tests to assess the progress your child has made in key stage 2 (years 3-6) and to compare how your child achieves with the attainment expectations for their age. The tests will take place the week commencing Monday 9th May 2022.

WHAT IS MY CHILD EXPECTED TO ACHIEVE?

The SATs endeavor to measure whether a child is reaching the Age Related Expectations at the end of Key Stage 2.  (See below for more information on what the assessments will involve)

During July, the school will be sent the raw scores that children have attained during the tests as well as a scaled score. Using the scaled score, the lowest a child can score is 80, with the highest being 120. A scaled score of 100 represents the expected standard and represents that a child has been judged to have demonstrated sufficient knowledge in the areas assessed by the tests.

If a child’s score is close to 80, they are judged to have not yet met the national standard and performed below the expectation for their age. 

There are not any separate tests for the most-able children. Instead, each test will have scope for higher-attaining pupils to show their strengths. If a child’s score is close to 120, they are working beyond (or above) the expected national standard.

You will be informed of your child’s results in their end of year report.

SUPPORT - ACCESS ARRANGEMENTS

There are a number of arrangements that the school can make for individuals to ensure that all children are able to access the tests. These include:

  • having a reader (in all tests apart from Reading test),
  • having a scribe,
  • being given additional time,
  • being given rest breaks in the test.

These arrangements must be part of normal classroom practice. 

The Year 6 sit a mock SATs test week in March where the children sit practice papers following the timetable of the SATs week. Other lessons continue as normal around the test times. This mock test week helps to familiarise children with the structure of the upcoming SATs week and tests. It also allows teachers to assess whether the support and access arrangements need to be applied.  

Please speak to your child's class teacher if you have any questions about this support.
