Our reading target is to read 3 times a week, To be a superstar reader it is 5 times a week - Pupils will receive a raffle ticket and entered into the draw, to be in for a chance of winning a book. If children read five times they get a sticker on their loyalty card and get to enjoy Frappe Friday in 'starbooks'


SATS or Standard Assessment Tests are used to evaluate your child's educational progress at the end of years 2, 6 and 9. They make comparisons between children against the average attainment expectations for their respective age group.


At the end of Year 6, children sit tests in:

  • Reading
  • Maths
  • Spelling, punctuation and grammar


These tests are both set and marked externally, and the results are used to measure the school’s performance (for example, through reporting to Ofsted and published league tables). Your child’s marks will be used in conjunction with teacher assessment to give a broader picture of their attainment and provide secondary with a clear picture of children's attainment in order to set targets for GCSE's and group children accordingly.


The Year 6 SATs will be administered in the week commencing 13 May 2019. The timetable is likely to follow previous years' timetables:


Monday 13 May 2019
English grammar, punctuation and spelling Paper 1: questions
English grammar, punctuation and spelling Paper 2: spelling


Tuesday 14 May 2019

Wednesday 15 May 2019
Mathematics Paper 1: arithmetic
Mathematics Paper 2: reasoning


Thursday 16 May 2019

The children will be fully prepared for the SATs.
