This year is the first year that children will sit the brand new National Curriculum tests.

 

In 2014/15 a new national curriculum framework was introduced by the government for Years 1, 3, 4 and 5.  However, Years 2 and 6 (due to statutory testing) continued to study the previous curriculum for one further year. 

From September 2015 children in all years at Key Stage 1 and 2 are expected to now study the new national curriculum. KS1 (Year 2) and KS2 SATs (Year 6) will reflect the new curriculum for the first time this year.  

If your child is in Year 6 this year, they will be the first pupils to take part in the new tests and the first to receive the new style of reporting results.  This will be in relation to Age Related Expectations (ARE). 

We are attaching a very useful presentation which we used at our Year 6 Parents Meeting.

Here are some comments from parents who attended the Year 6 SATs meeting:

“It was interesting to hear what is expected of the children. I think that this new curriculum is putting massive pressure on children and staff. Thank you for all of your hard work.”

 

“The SATs meeting was really useful, clarifying the areas of the new Year Six curriculum I was not sure about. “

 

“I thought it was really helpful coming to the meeting, helping us support our children ready for their SATs.”
