SATS  

During May of the summer term in Year 2 children sit SATS papers - these are statutory tests taken by primary school children, which provide information about your child’s progress compared to children of the same age nationally. The SATS papers focus on the English skills of grammar, spelling, punctuation and comprehension and the Mathematics skills of arithmetic and reasoning. SATS results are shared with parents with the end of year report.
