Key Stage 1 SATs 2021

As school disruption continues due to the pandemic, the Department for Education has announced that in 2021, there will be no SATs for pupils in KS1 (at the end of Year 2).

This means that: There will be no written SATs in reading, maths or grammar, spelling and punctuation (GPS). There will be no formal teacher assessment in science. Teacher assessment in reading, writing and maths will go ahead.

Phonics Screening Check

The phonics screening check is taken individually by all children in Year 1 in England, and is usually taken in June. It is designed to give teachers and parents information on how your child is progressing in phonics. It will help to identify whether your child needs additional support at this stage so that they do not fall behind in this vital early reading skill.

Our Year 1 children will complete the National Phonics Screening Check in school with a member of teaching staff they know during week commencing Monday 7th June 2021.

Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check

Primary-school children are expected to know all their times tables up to 12x12. Under the current National Curriculum, children are supposed to know their times tables by the end of Year 4. Children will need to take a short online statutory test to make sure their times tables knowledge is at the expected level.

This will be carried out within 3 weeks of 7th June 2021.
