Tasks and Testsmay be administered any time during the assessment

period. Whilst SATs will still be taken by the pupils, reported results are based on their

teacher assessment, which will reflect children’s everyday achievements

and not just results obtained in a ‘one-off’ test.

What do National Curriculum levels mean?

There are eight levels in the National Curriculum. Children are expected to work their way through one level every two years. At the end of Year 2 children are expected to achieve level 2. At the end of Year 6 children are expected to achieve level 4.

If a child has achieved the expected level it means they show knowledge and skills that are the same as, or slightly better than, most children of the same age. There are also optional national tests for 8, 9 and 10 year olds. We also use these to check children’s progress.

What else will the report tell me?

The report will show your child’s results which you may want to discuss with their teacher. The summary of the school’s results for your child’s age group as a whole will also be reported.

To sum up

National tests are an important milestone in school life. They give useful information to your child’s teachers and to the government. But it’s important to get them in proportion. They are just one of the ways the school works out how well your child is doing. They shouldn’t be stressful, and in fact many children enjoy the change in routine, as long as they know they have your support and understanding.
