Assessment

A leaflet about SATS in Y2 & Y6 from the DfE for parents

SATs are Standard Assessment Tests

They are:-

  • a snapshot of how your child performs on a particular occasion
  • only assessing certain aspects of a subject
  • marked against specific criteria
  • a ‘summing up’ of a child’s progress at the end of a key stage

 

Teacher Assessment

  • Is on going from entry in school
  • Covers all aspects of the curriculum
  • Informs our teaching and planning of future activities
  • Informs us about your child’s understanding
  • Takes different forms (talking about work, marking work, observing children carrying out activities)
  • Is matched to ‘Age Related Expectations’  set by the DfE

 

When are the tests in 2018?

Key Stage 1: throughout May and June

 

Key Stage 2:  Monday 14th May – Thursday 17th May

 

Children should not go on holiday during these periods, or leading up to the tests.

 

Children in Year 2 and will be tested in English (reading & writing) & maths) and children in Year 6 will be tested in English (reading, writing, grammar & spelling) and in maths.

 

PLEASE REMEMBER …All children are individual! 

 

What we should celebrate, as parents and as teachers, is that each individual child has made progress – not necessarily focus on the level a child has attained.

 

PLEASE  RESIST THE URGE TO COMPARE ONE CHILD UNFAVOURABLY WITH ANOTHER

(your own or someone else’s!)

Helping at Home

  1. Do not put undue pressure on your child.
  2. Support with homework and targets discussed at Parents’ Evening.
  3. Read regularly and discuss a variety of texts – not just ‘listening’ to your child read.
  4. Short bursts of mental maths, times tables and problem solving etc
  5. Please! DO NOT use the previous test papers as we use them in school as assessment and practice for the children and using the same papers at home makes it difficult for us to prepare the children adequately.

 

 

We recommend:-

 

Early nights

Lots of sleep

Good attendance

Good punctuality

A good breakfast

 

LOTS OF PRAISE AND ENCOURAGEMENT!
