During the month of May, children in Tear Two sit national curriculum tests in English and mathematics (commonly called SATs). Your child’s teacher is responsible for judging the standards your child is working at in English reading, English writing, mathematics and science, by the end of key stage 1. We ensure that during this time there is no undue pressure placed on the children and continue the routines that the children know and are comfortable with.
Parents naturally have questions about the nature of SATs and exactly what they are. Hopefully, these resources will help but if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to talk to your child’s class teacher.
The tests are a tool for teachers to help them measure your child’s performance and identify their needs as they move into key stage 2. They also allow teachers to see how your child is performing against nationally expected standards.
