SATS in KS1
The SATS assessments in Key Stage 1 are for children in year 2 class, they are also known as the National Curriculum Tests. The assessment is marked by the teacher and along with their knowledge of the child in the classroom will make a judgement of how your child is progressing in reading, writing and maths.
There are 3 outcomes for assessment:
- working towards the expected standard
- working at the expected standard
- working at greater depth within the expected standard
The results of the assessments will be shared with you in the format of a scaled score. Scaled score means an average mark for the age group, for example if a child was to score 100 this would mean they have achieved the expected standard.
More information can be found in this helpful document published by the DfE (2017).
Dates for Assessment:
Oak Class will sit the assessments during May 2019.
Unlike KS2 there are not set dates or times for the tests to be carried out.
English is broken down into 4 tests: Grammar and Punctuation, Spelling and Reading (x2)
