Year 6 SATS Information

Year 6 Parents Information evening on KS2 SATs for 2016

On Wednesday 7th December 2016 we held an information evening for Year 6 parents about the KS2 SATs.  There have been changes to the KS2 SATs over the last year as they are testing the children on the new curriculum; the expectations for the age related standard for Year 6 are higher than before.  The children will not receive a level as they did in previous years but instead they will be awarded a standardised score. 

Below is the presentation (courtesy of Twinkl) that the staff used to present the information to parents.  If you were unable to attend, we hope you find the information useful.  If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Year 6 teachers.
