During May in Year 6, children undertake National Curriculum Tests (commonly known as SATs) in English and Mathematics. These provide records of attainment in the subjects, including standardised scores for maths, reading and writing. In addition, teachers are required to provide teacher assessments in English, maths and science.
The SATS results are reported to your child’s next school. Secondary schools then use these results, together with their own assessments, to set targets for Years 7, 8 and 9 (and often beyond up to GCSE). Some also use them to inform ability grouping. It is important therefore, that these assessments are an accurate reflection of your child’s attainment to ensure they are suitably challenged/supported at their next school. We particularly ask you to support homework tasks, which will revise concepts and skills needed for these tests.
