Year 1 Phonics Screener
At the end of Year 1 our children take a screener to establish their use of phonics when reading stand alone words. Phonics is one of many strategies we use to teach reading.
Key Stage 1 SATs
Key stage 1 covers children aged 5-7 years old in Years 1 and 2 at school.
The Year 2 children will take their KS1 SATs (Statutory Assessment Tests) during May.
These tests are used to inform a teacher's assessment, which will reflect your child’s everyday achievements not just the results gained in a “one-off” test.
Teacher assessment is a summative judgement based on the standards of work children are producing each day.
When making their judgement, your child’s teacher will look through your child’s work and compare their work against national assessment criteria. Every school is audited regularly to ensure assessment standards are secure and consistent across the country.
Your child’s reported results are based on teacher assessment, not test results, and will be sent with their annual report in late June.
A typical seven-year-old will normally be working at Year 2 Age Related Expectations.
Please ask if you have any questions or need additional information.
Key stage 2 SATs
Key stage 2 covers children aged 7-11 years old with SATS (Statutory Assessment Tests) taken during a week in May, usually the week after the bank holiday.
The results are reported to parents, along with the individual child's teacher assessment.
It is these results that a reported nationally.
