What are SATs?

Assessment is used regularly to allow us to make informed judgements about the abilities, knowledge or attitudes of the children within our care. We can then adapt our future planning and teaching to meet the needs of the children.

SATs are a type of formal assessment that take place at the end of Year 2 and Year 6 in the form of National SATs (Standard Assessment Tasks). These results are formally collected and analysed externally. In addition, the teachers in Y3 – Y5 use less formal assessments. We use the information gleaned from the assessments to analyse the specific needs of the children. We endeavour to make the SATs as comfortable as we can for the children and try to limit the pressure that some children inevitably feel.

What can I do to help?

Year 2 and Year 6 SATs meetings are held every year before the SATs for parents and carers to come in and learn a little bit more about them, how to support your child at home and so that teachers can answer any questions you may have. Dates and times of these meetings will be shared on our website 'events' page and also on the schools weekly newsletter. If you have any questions about the SATs please do not hesitate to contact your child's class teacher.
