End of Year Expectations





As you may be aware we have been working with a changed curriculum since September 2014.  All year groups including Year 2 and 6 are tested under the new framework.  The level at which the children are expected to work by the end of each year has significantly increased in all areas of the curriculum.  We have devised a set of booklets to help families with the expectations the children are required to reach by the end of that year. The Government have also made it very clear that all the objectives have to be met in all areas to assess a child is working at age related expectations.


Please see the appropriate year group booklets using the red buttons on the left hand side.

Phonics Screening - Year 1

In Year 1 the children will sit a phonics screening test in June, this will assess whether a child has a secure knowledge of phonics and reading.  The test involves reading a series of 40 words.  The results are sent to the Government, and a pass mark is then established along with a National Average.  The results of the phonics test have to be reported to families in the child’s end of year report.  Any child not passing the test will have to resit the test in Year 2.

Year 2 SATs

In Year 2 the children will sit their SATs tests in May (in reading, SPaG and maths). The results of these tests currently are used in conjunction with ongoing teacher assessments.  The teacher will then make a judgement about whether a child is working below within standards 1-6, working towards, working at or working at greater depth within the year group expectations.  These results will then be submitted to the authority and reported to parents and carers in the child’s end of year report.

Multiplication Test - Year 4

In Year 4 the children have to sit a multiplication test in June.  This consists of 25 multiplication questions which are answered on a screen.  The children have 6 seconds in which to answer the question before it moves on to the next.  The test is carried out in June and the results are given to the school shortly after the test window has passed.

Year 6 SATs

In Year 6 the children sit their SATs tests (in reading, SPaG and maths) in May. These tests are carried out in ‘exam’ conditions and sent off to be externally marked and results come into school in early July. The results of these tests are then reported to families in the end of year report.  We also have to submit teacher assessments in writing to the Local Authority; these assessments will hopefully closely match the child’s SATs results.

At any time, representatives from the Local Authority can come to school to ensure that the tests are administered in the correct way.
