The Downley School

“Learning, Growing and Succeeding Together”

Year 2 Assessment

In year 2 we undertake SATs tests with the children. They are statutory tests to reflect the attainment of the children and inform teaching. These are a National requirement and all children attending school are required to take them unless disapplied due to levels or other circumstances. If your child needs help with them the school will discuss this with you and apply for support. In Key stage 1 children are not timed within these tests and may be given movement breaks etc to support them. The outcomes of the tests are published by the government within league tables, and we are required to publish our results on our website.

The year 2 staff hold a meeting about the tests prior to them being undertaken. We would recommend that you attend these to know what the expectations are and how best to support your child. These will be advertised on the school calendar and the newsletter.
