Welcome to Year Six. It's your child's final year in Primary School and it can be a most rewarding one! If you have any questions about your child's progress or would like to know a little bit more about what we do in Year 6, please feel free to drop in...we have an open door policy! This page will offer a taster of some of the things we do in Year 6.
SATS Information for Parents
The tests will provide information about how your child is progressing, compared
to children the same age nationally.
They are not qualifications and don’t affect your child’s future options in school.
The results are used to ensure that schools are teaching their pupils the essential
knowledge and skills in the subjects that are the early building blocks. This is to
ensure every child reaches their full potential.
There are changes to the tests this year at both key stages. This is because the
tests are based on the new national curriculum, which your child has been taught
since September 2014.
Key stage 2 tests – year 6 pupils
The main changes to the tests from 2016 are:
The inclusion of questions to assess new areas of core subjects in the national
curriculum your child has been taught.
A new arithmetic test to check your child is progressing with the fundamentals
Your child will take these tests on set dates, unless he or she is absent, when
they may be able to take them up to 5 school days afterwards.
