SATs Information for Parents

 

Please find below a PowerPoint with information relating to the Statutory Assessment Tests (SATs) for the Year 6 children which will take place during the week of the 9th of May 2022. 

 

 

How can I support my child during the week of the tests? 

First and foremost, it is really important that children do not become unduly worried about the SATs tests. To support your child during the week, it would benefit them to have a healthy breakfast each morning and to get a good night’s sleep. 

 

Reporting of results after the tests: 

 

Information about how the results are reported are included within the PowerPoint. 

Because the tests are marked externally, the test results are not released to schools until towards the end of the summer term.  You will receive your child’s results as part of their final end of year report and you will have an opportunity to discuss these with me. 

Secondary Schools 

SATs tests are used by secondary schools to inform them of where the children currently are in their learning and the areas that that may need additional support in; some schools use them as part of their decision-making progress when ‘setting’ children for different subjects.  As well as the SATs results, I will be discussing and passing on my teacher judgements to your child’s next school, particularly if I disagree with a test result.  

Finally, it is important to remember that the children have had many disruptions to their learning in the last two years and that all they can do is their best. I am very proud of their hard work this year and their positive learning attitudes which will stand them in good stead for the next steps of their learning at secondary school. 

I hope you have found this information useful. During our parent meeting after Easter, we will of course discuss your child’s learning and I can answer any questions that you may have. 

Best wishes, 

Mrs Hughes
