At the end of each academic year, your child is assessed against the National Curriculum expectations in reading, grammar, writing and maths. It is Robin Hood Primary School’s aim to ensure that children reach, or exceed, age-related expectations across all subjects.
National Curriculum Tests:
Children are required to sit Standard Attainment Tests (SATs) at the end of Key Stage One (year two) and at the end of Key Stage Two (year six). As part of the national curriculum review, levels have been abolished. From 2016, scaled scores are now used to report national curriculum test outcomes. A pupil’s scaled score will be based on their raw score. The raw score is the total number of marks a pupil receives in a test, based on the number of questions they answered correctly. The pupil’s raw score will be translated into a scaled score using a conversion table. A pupil who achieves the national standard will have demonstrated sufficient knowledge in the areas assessed by the tests. This will mean that they are well placed to succeed in the next phase of their education.
