Statutory Assessment


We hold  information evenings for parents every year about the Statutory Assessments which will take place in the Summer Term.


Currently, children undergo statutory assessment at the following points:

End of Reception Profile (this is due to change to a baseline assessment at the start of Reception)

Year 1 Phonics Screening taken during June (Year 2 children may also be screened, depending on their Year 1 outcomes)

Year 2 Statutory Assessments - Teacher assessments based upon teacher knowledge and KS1 Tests, administered during May.

Year 4 Multiplication Tables check - new for 2020

Year 6 Statutory Assessments - Tests in Reading, Maths, GPS (Grammar, Punctuation, Spelling) and Teacher Assessment for writing.
