In recent years there has been much talk of change with regards the assessment of children in primary schools.
As part of our commitment to engage with parents and carers in supporting pupils’ progress, we have produced this webpage in order to inform families of children in Year 1, Year 2 and Year 6 what the current statutory assessment procedures are for children in these year groups.
Year 1 Phonics Screening Check (Year 1 pupils)
We are required to administer a phonics screening check to children in Year 1.
The 2017 check will take place during the week beginning Monday 12th June 2017.
The 2018 check will take place during the week beginning Monday 11th June 2018.
The 2019 check will take place during the week beginning Monday 10th June 2019.
Key Stage 1 Assessment (Year 2 pupils)
Key Stage 1 SATs are used to test children's knowledge and understanding of English and mathematics in Key Stage 1. They provide a snapshot of children's attainment and help Year 2 teachers arrive at a secure judgement for their final 'teacher assessment' at the end of Key Stage 1. Key Stage 1 SATs take place in May at Clavering Primary School.
Key Stage 2 Assessment (Year 6 pupils)
Schools are required to administer the following tests: English Reading; English Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling (new from 2013); and Mathematics.
The 2017 end of Key Stage 2 national curriculum tests will be held in the week beginning Monday 8th May 2017.
Monday 8th May: English reading
Tuesday 9th May: English grammar, punctuation and spelling: Paper 1 (questions) and Paper 2 (spelling)
Wednesday 10th May: Mathematics: Paper 1 (arithmetic) and Paper 2 (reasoning)
Thursday 11th May: Mathematics: Paper 3 (reasoning)
The 2018 end of Key Stage 2 national curriculum tests will be held in the week beginning Monday 14th May 2018.
The 2019 end of Key Stage 2 national curriculum tests will be held in the week beginning Monday 13th May 2019.
