KEY STAGE 2 ENGLISH IS EASY – GRAMMAR, PUNCTUATION AND SPELLING
Whilst SATs are a daunting, disliked and let’s be honest, boring concept, they remain an imperative part of children’s education.
Children should be provided with the best tools and practise to enhance their intellectual ability and improve their performance.
The purpose of this section is to guide you through the Key Stage 2 English test (Grammar, Punctuation, and Spelling), and allow you to familiarise yourself with all the important information, advice and tips you will need for you and your child to prepare for the SATs and obtain successful results.
THE NEW NATIONAL CURRICULUM
From the summer of 2016, the SATs for children will undergo considerable changes as dictated by the new national curriculum.
The purpose of the new and revised SATs is to ensure these tests remain rigorous and therefore, they will prove to be of a much higher standard to previous SATs.
With the new national curriculum comes a new marking scheme. Whilst we cannot provide what this marking scheme consists of, we can assure you that children’s tests will be marked externally. The scores of these tests will be used to monitor the progress of each school’s performance, which is done via Ofsted reports and league tables.
Ultimately, your child’s scores in their SATs will be used in conjunction with classroom assessments, in order to provide a general overview of a child’s attainment and progression during that academic year.
For more information on the new national curriculum, please visit the Government website.
