Introduction

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.

Phonics screening check (Y1 pupils)

We are required to administer a phonics screening check to children in Year 1.

The 2020 check will take place during the week beginning Monday 8th June 2020.

The 2021 check will take place during the week beginning Monday 7th June 2021.

Key Stage 1 assessment (Y2 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 (Y6 pupils)

Schools are required to administer the following tests: English reading; English grammar, punctuation and spelling; and Mathematics. 

The 2020 end of Key Stage 2 national curriculum tests will be held in the week beginning Monday 11th May 2020.

The 2021 end of Key Stage 2 national curriculum tests will be held in the week beginning Monday 10th May 2021.

Multiplication tables check (Y4 pupils)

An online times tables check will be administered by schools to Year 4 pupils from the 2019-20 academic year onwards.

The 2020 check will be administered within the 3 week period from Monday 8 June 2020.

The 2021 check will be administered within the 3 week period from Monday 7 June 2021.
