In May 2022, your Year 6 child will sit their national SATs assessments. Recently, we have undertaken a mock SATs week and it is fantastic to see the positive progress and outcomes pupils are achieving and continue to work towards. Year 6 SATs are a crucial part of primary school and have provided information below for parents.
These assessments test pupils' knowledge from across KS2. These are externally marked tests and this information is passed on to pupils' secondary schools. Pupils will complete SATs tests in small groups throughout the national days below.
All Year 6 pupils in England will sit their SATs in w/c Monday 9th May.
|Monday 9th May||Spelling, punctuation and grammar|
|Tuesday 10th May||Reading|
|Wednesday 11th May||Maths|
|Thursday 12th May||Maths|
