The children in Y6 will be taking their end of Key Stage 2 SATs tests in May. The SATs are a statutory requirement and test the knowledge built up in school over the last four years. The year 6 curriculum  builds upon previous knowledge, skills and understanding developed throughout the school.

We will be holding a Parent maths workshop and a Parent SAT update meeting during Spring 1 and Spring 2 respectively.

You will also find a short video below which was produced by Michael Tidd, who writes an education blog and teaches in KS2. This video highlights how the tests were structured for 2016 as well as some of the important information related to the changes. Please have a look.
