In the summer term of 2016, children in Year 2 and Year 6 were the first to take the new SATs papers. The new-style SATs for English and maths reflect the new national curriculum, and are more rigorous than previous years’ tests. There is also a completely new SATs marking scheme and grading system which has replaced national curriculum levels.
At the end of Year 6, children sat tests in:
•Spelling, punctuation and grammar
These tests are both set and marked externally, and the results are used to measure the school’s performance.
The previous national curriculum levels have been scrapped, and instead children are given scaled scores.
The range of scaled scores available for each KS2 test is:
•80 (the lowest scaled score that can be awarded)
•120 (the highest scaled score)
The expected standard for each test is a scaled score of 100 or more, to be assessed as ‘High level of attainment’ a scale score of 110 needed to have been achieved.
