KS1 & KS2 SATs 2017 Info for parents
Do you have a child in primary school in Yr 2 or Yr 6?
If so, they will be taking the national curriculum tests (SATs) in May 2017.
The tests will provide information about how your child is progressing, compared to children the same age nationally.
They are not qualifications and don’t affect your child’s future options in school. The results are used to ensure that schools are teaching their pupils the essential knowledge and skills in the subjects that are the early building blocks. This is to ensure every child reaches their full potential.
There are changes to the tests this year at both key stages. This is because the tests are based on the new national curriculum, which your child has been taught since September 2014.
Whilst a meeting for parents was held at school last month, to further inform you about this year's tests at KS1 and KS2, if you were unable to attend the meeting the information is available below.
