  1. Key Stage 1 SATs Willand School

  2. Key Stage 1 SATs Changes • In 2014/15 a new national curriculum framework was introduced by the government for Years 1, 3, 4 and 5 • However, Years 2 and 6 (due to statutory testing) continued to study the previous curriculum for one further year. • In 2015/16 children in all years at Key Stage 1 and 2 are expected to now study the new national curriculum. • KS1 (Year 2) and KS2 SATs (Year 6) will reflect the new curriculum for the first time this year. • This years Year 2 and Year 6 will be the first pupils to receive the new tests and the first to receive the new style of reporting results.

  3. Assessment and Reporting • ‘Old’ national curriculum levels (e.g. Level 1, 2, 3) have now been abolished, as set out in the government guidelines. • From 2016, test scores will be reported as ‘scaled scores’. • This means it is very difficult to compare the assessment of a previous year with the current year. • Your child will still be taught with the highest expectations and cover all required elements of the curriculum, similar to previous years. • The new curriculum is more rigorous and sets higher expectations which all schools have had to work hard to meet since the beginning of last year.

  4. Scaled Scores • What is meant by ‘scaled scores’? • For the KS1 tests a scaled score of 100 will always represent the ‘expected standard’. • A pupil’s scaled score will be based on their raw score. The raw score is the total number of marks a pupil receives in a test, based on the number of questions they answered correctly. The pupil’s raw score will be translated into a scaled score using a conversion table. • For 2016 KS1 tests, conversion tables will be published online at the beginning of June 2016. Teachers will need to use these to translate pupils’ raw scores into scaled scores to see whether each pupil has met the expected standard.

  5. Scaled Score Examples • On publication of the test results in July 2016: • A child awarded a scaled score of 100 is judged to have met the ‘national standard’ in the area judged by the test. • A child awarded a scaled score of more than 100 is judged to have exceeded the national standard and demonstrated a higher than expected knowledge of the curriculum for their age. • A child awarded a scaled score of less than 100 is judged to have not yet met the national standard and performed below expectation for their age.

  6. The Tests • Key Stage 1 SATs take place nationally in May. We are yet to confirm the timetable. • The new tests consist of: • English reading Paper 1: combined reading prompt and answer booklet • English reading Paper 2: reading booklet and reading answer booklet • English grammar, punctuation and spelling Paper 1: spelling • English grammar, punctuation and spelling Paper 2: questions • Mathematics Paper 1: arithmetic • Mathematics Paper 2: reasoning • There won’t be any test-based assessment of writing as part of the KS1 tests. This will be done through teacher assessment. • We have been and continue to collect independent pieces of work to back this up.

  7. Reading • The new reading test has a greater emphasis on the comprehension elements of the new curriculum. • There are 2 reading papers, one with the texts and questions combined and one with more challenging texts with the questions in a separate booklet. • Both papers must be administered to all pupils. • Each paper will have a selection of unrelated texts of increasing difficulty. There will be a mixture of text genres. • Paper 1 consists of a combined reading prompt and answer booklet. It is expected that the test will take approximately 30 minutes to complete but it is not strictly timed. The paper includes a list of useful words and some practice questions for teachers to use to introduce the contexts and question types to pupils. • Paper 2 consists of a reading answer booklet and a separate reading booklet. It is expected that the test will take approximately 40 minutes to complete but it is not strictly timed. There are no practice questions on this paper. • .

  8. English Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling Test • The new grammar, punctuation and spelling test has an emphasis on technical aspects of grammar. • There are 2 papers, Paper 1: spelling and Paper 2: questions. • The written task has been removed and writing will instead be assessed through teacher assessment. • Paper 1: spelling consists of an answer booklet for pupils to complete and a test transcript to be read by the test administrator. Pupils will have approximately 15 minutes to complete the test but it is not strictly timed, writing the 20 missing words in the answer booklet. • Paper 2: questions consist of a single test paper focusing on pupils’ knowledge of grammar, punctuation and vocabulary. Pupils will have approximately 20 minutes to complete the questions in the test paper but it is not strictly timed. There will be no contextualised questions in the test (as there were in the initial sample questions).

  11. Mathematics • In mathematics at KS1, an arithmetic test has been introduced. There are two papers, Paper 1: arithmetic and Paper 2: reasoning. • Paper 1: arithmetic assesses pupils’ confidence and mathematical fluency with whole numbers, place-value and counting. The test consists of a single test paper. It is expected that the test will take approximately 20 minutes to complete but it is not strictly timed. • Paper 2: reasoning assesses pupils’ mathematical fluency, problem solving and reasoning skills. This test consists of a single test paper. It is expected that the reasoning paper will take approximately 35 minutes to complete but it is not strictly timed. The paper includes a practice question and 5 aural questions. After the aural questions, the time for the remainder of the paper should be approximately 30 minutes.

  14. In 2016, teacher assessments must be reported using the standards set out in the interim teacher assessment frameworks. • There are 21 ‘Pupil can’ statements across three levels – working towards the expected standard, working at the expected standard and working at greater depth within the expected standard. • Teachers will report which standard a pupil has met. If a pupil does not meet any of the above standards, they will be working below working towards and have a separate set of pupil can statements to be assessed against. • To demonstrate that pupils have met a standard, there has to be evidence that they have met every statement within that standard, rather than a ‘best fit’. • Statements regarding spelling, handwriting and grammar are included. Writing

  15. Teachers will collect evidence from the writing each child produces across the year. • Writing from across the curriculum is used, for example science experiments or work in History. Writing

  16. What are we doing to support your child with these increased expectations? • Intervention groups – run each morning between 9 and 9.15 with a TA. Target specific areas of need e.g. times tables, punctuation. It is really important that children are in school on time so that they can access these. • Reading intervention – run each afternoon during registration with a teacher for roughly 20 mins. Support children with comprehension and answering comprehension questions. • Targeted groups – working with a teacher in a small group out of lesson time to fill any gaps/provide extra support. • Booster sessions – run by Mrs Bosworth. Children are grouped according to their needs and focused activities are carried out. • Breakfast Club during SATs week. • Most importantly, encouraging them not to worry and to just do their best!

  17. How to Help Your Child • First and foremost, support and reassure your child that there is nothing to worry about and they should always just try their best. Praise and encourage! • Ensure your child has the best possible attendance at school. • Support your child with any homework tasks. • Reading, spelling and arithmetic (e.g. times tables) are always good to practise. • Talk to your child about what they have learnt at school and what book(s) they are reading (the character, the plot, their opinion). • Make sure your child has a good sleep and healthy breakfast every morning!
