Year 2 KS1 SATs
Compulsory SAT tests are carried out every year in school with children in Year 2 and Year 6. In addition to this children in Year 1 take a phonics reading test in June. This test is a series of words – proper and nonsense words which children are asked to read using their phonic knowledge. If a child in Year 1 does not get the required number of words right to pass the test they are able to resit it in Year 2.
Key Stage 1 Assessment (Year 2 pupils)
Key Stage 1 SATs are used to test children’s knowledge and understanding of English and Mathematics in Key Stage 1. They provide a snapshot of children’s attainment and help Year 2 teachers arrive at a secure judgement for their final ‘teacher assessment’ at the end of Key Stage 1. Key Stage 1 SATs take place in May at John Clifford School.
