Y6 Information on SATs for parents and carers

Can you explain what the subjunctive form is?
Can you explain the rules for using semi-colons?
Can you explain how to find the interior angle measurement in a pentagon?
Can you answer 2/5 divided by 2?

Maybe a better question is: Could you have answered these questions when you were 11?

There has been a huge leap in expectations for all children in Year 6 nationally over the last few years. The good news is, our children are rising to it! Last year, the percentage of children to achieve ‘Year 6 standard’ nationally in all subjects was 64%.  This is higher in individual subjects.

Year 6 SATs are during the week of the 13th-16th May 2019.

It will be really helpful if there are no Year 6 absences in the run up to and including this week please.


There is no writing composition exam.  Writing is teacher assessed over the course of the year. There will be some ‘Science Sampling’ tests for a small percentage of schools - we will not know which schools are involved until the summer term.  This is not reported on individually.

 Test Scoring

Your child will receive a raw score – how many marks out of the possible total (Grammar Punctuation Spelling – 70, Maths- 110, Reading – 50). You will also get a scaled score and a progress measure to show how they have performed over the key stage. A scaled score of 100 will be judged to have met the “National Standard”. Below 100 means they are working towards the standard and above 110 has previously meant a child is working at Greater Depth within the standard. These scores will not be available until early July.


Special Arrangements

Some children will have readers for the maths / GPS tests or will be out with teaching assistants so they are able to concentrate. We are allowed to read any questions in the maths/GPS tests if any children ask us to. Some children may be given extra time or rest breaks if we feel this is necessary – this will be applied for in advance of the tests.
