Year 6 national curriculum tests (also known as SATs)

Assessments in year 6 are used to measure school performance and to make sure individual pupils are supported in the best way possible as they move into secondary school. They take place in May each year and children are assessed in reading, writing, grammar, punctuation and spelling, maths and science.

The results are reported using a scaled score. The highest possible scaled score is 120 and the lowest is 80. A scaled score of 100 represents the expected standard and a scaled score of 110+ represents the higher standard.

Progress scores show how much progress children in our academy made in reading, writing and maths between the end of key stage 1 and the end of key stage 2, compared to pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 1. For further information please visit the Department of Education (DfE) website.
