Please see below for the time table for 2022.
How are they marked?
The formal SATs test are sent off and externally marked. Results are then returned to the school, usually towards the start of July, and then we will report these results to the parents, as well as nationally.
How will I find out more?
Closer to the time, we will hold a special meeting for parents to go through exactly what is involved with the SATs testing and how it will affect your child. There will be opportunities to see past papers and ask any questions you have. If you have any questions in the meantime, please speak to a member of the Year 6 team who will be more than happy to help you.
