National Assessments

Our school takes part in statutory national testing (SATs) at the end of each key stage (End of Year 2 and End of Year 6).

During the May the children will sit a statutory test for Reading, Maths and Spelling Punctuation and Grammar (SPaG). Our aim at Carnforth is to prepare children for the test but ensure that when the assessments are undertaken, it is in a calm, familiar, and relaxed setting. Our children know that giving it their best is all we ask!

Writing is assessed by school and verified through moderation across schools and is also confirmed through an external moderator from the Local Authority.

More information on SATs can be found from the link below:

Meetings with parents and carers are arranged closer to the time of the assessments in which we will walk through what it will look like for your child and what the requirements are.

Should you have any concerns or queries that arise before these meetings then, as always, please don’t hesitate to speak to us.
