KS2 SAT’s Results 2016
The new key stage 2 tests 2016 was the first year of the new key stage 2 tests in maths, reading and grammar, punctuation and spelling. The tests assess children against a national standard. This year’s tests are the first tests to reflect the new primary curriculum, which was introduced in 2014.
As this is the first year of the new tests the results will look different from those of previous years and cannot be compared with them directly. The new curriculum expects children to have mastered the skills in reading, writing and maths this means they need to be secure in all areas of the subject to achieve the expected standard.
Further statistical information on our school can be accessed via the School Performance Tables on the DFE website.
