Statutory Assessments

Children in Year 1, Year 2 and Year 6 will complete statutory assessments in 2017.

 

Year 1

The phonics screening test will take place in the week beginning the 12th June 2017.  Your child will sit with his/her teacher and read aloud 40 words, which will include made up words, to check that he/she has learnt phonic decoding to the expected standard.  There will be a parents' meeting arranged early in 2017 where you will be able to find out more about the test and hear from your child's teacher how you can help them to be successful.  You are most welcome to speak with your child's class teacher at any time about how to support their reading development at home.

 

Year 2

SATs for Year 2 will take place in May 2017 (dates announced closer to the time). We will be holding a number of parents' meetings and workshops, during which you will find out more about the tests and hear from your child's teacher how you can help them to prepare.  In the meantime, please click here to see a guide to the tests and for advice on how to help at home.
