Assessment in Year 6 at Key Stage 2
Information for Parents
Towards the end of Year 6, in May, the children will sit assessment tests set by the DfE under examination conditions. They are known as SATs (Standard Assessment Tests). They sit tests in Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling (GPS or SPaG); Reading; Arithmetic and Reasoning (two papers). All of these assessments are produced each year and are marked externally. The results are sent to schools at the beginning of July.
In addition to these tests, teacher assessment grades for Writing and Science are produced.
