End of Key Stage 1 SATs 2017

At the end of Key Stage 1, teachers use teacher assessment judgements to report on the progress of their pupils. These assessment judgements take into account a pupil’s performance in national curriculum tests (often referred to as SATs) in mathematics, English reading and English grammar, punctuation and spelling.  Writing results are solely based on teachers’ assessments of pupils’ writing over time.

Below are our 2017 results:
