Key Stage 2 SATs - Victoria Dock Primary School

Key Stage 2 SATs - Victoria Dock Primary School

Key Stage 2 SATs Parents Workshop 2018 Information and Guidance on the Changes and Expectations for 2018/19 Key Stage 2 SATs Changes In 2014/15 a new national curriculum framework was introduced by the government for Years 1, 3, 4 and 5 From 2015/16 children in all years at Key Stage 1 and 2 are expected to study the new national curriculum. KS1 (Year 2) and KS2 SATs (Year 6) will reflect the new curriculum for the fourth time this year. As your child is in Year 6 this year, they will be the fourth pupils

to receive the new tests and receive the new style of reporting results. Assessment and Reporting Old national curriculum levels (e.g. Level 3, 4, 5) have now been abolished, as set out in the government guidelines. From 2016, test scores have been reported as scaled scores. This means it is very difficult to compare the assessment of the current year with their Key Stage 1 attainment. Your child will still be taught with the highest expectations and cover all required elements of the curriculum, similar to previous years. The new curriculum is more rigorous and sets high expectations

which all schools have had to work hard to meet for several Scaled Scores 100 will always represent the national standard. Each pupils raw test score will therefore be converted into a score on the scale, either at, above or below 100. The scale will have a lower end point somewhere below 100 and an upper end point above 100. A child who achieves the national standard (a score of 100) will be judged to have demonstrated sufficient knowledge in the areas assessed by the tests. In July 2019, each pupil will receive: A raw score (number of raw marks awarded). A scaled score in each tested subject.

Confirmation of whether or not they attained the national standard. Scaled Score Examples On publication of the test results in July 2019: A child awarded a scaled score of 100 is judged to have met the national standard in the area judged by the test. This is commonly referred to as ARE (Age Related Expectations) A child awarded a scaled score of more than 100 is judged to have exceeded the national standard and demonstrated a higher than expected knowledge of the curriculum for their age. This is also commonly referred to as ARE (Age Related Expectations) A scaled score of 110+ indicates the child has scored highly and has grasped the age-related expectations in greater depth. This is commonly referred to as GDS

(greater depth). A child awarded a scaled score of less than 100 is judged to have not yet met the Higher Attaining Pupils Previous Key Stage 2 tests were aimed at children achieving Levels 3-5 (with a national expectation to reach at least Level 4) In the past, additional Level 6 tests were produced for children who demonstrated higher than expected attainment, above Level 5. As in the previous two years, there wont be any separate tests for the most able children. Instead, each test will have scope for higher attaining pupils to show their strengths.

A score of 110+ would indicate a higher attaining pupil. The Tests Key Stage 2 SATs take place nationally in the week commencing 13th May 2019. Statutory tests will be administered in the following subjects: SPaG Punctuation, Vocabulary and Grammar (45 minutes) Spelling (approximately 15 minutes) Reading (60 minutes) Mathematics Paper 1: Arithmetic (30 minutes) Paper 2: Reasoning (40 minutes) Paper 3: Reasoning (40 minutes)

The Tests (continued) In addition, some schools will be required to take part in Science testing, consisting of three tests in Biology, Physics and Chemistry. Not all schools will take part in this sampling, which takes place on a later date. All tests are externally marked. Writing will be Teacher Assessed internally, as in recent years. The Tests What score is needed? Reading SPaG

How to Help Your Child First and foremost, support and reassure your child that there is nothing to worry about and they should always just try their best. Praise and encourage! Ensure your child has the best possible attendance at school. Support your child with any homework tasks. Reading, spelling and arithmetic (e.g. times tables) are always good to practise. Talk to your child about what they have learnt at school and what book(s) they are reading (the character, the plot, their opinion). Make sure your child has a good sleep and healthy breakfast every morning! Use CGP books to help children build confidence and refresh skills. Read different texts at home for pleasure, sometimes for extended periods of time.
