Assessment Update December 2020
On 3rd December, the government published assessment arrangements for the year ahead.
Year 2’s end of key-stage 1 tests (SATs) will be removed for one year, in recognition of the challenges posed by the pandemic.
The test results are usually combined with evidence from the classroom to form a teacher assessment judgement. This year we will continue to teacher assess how well our Year 2 pupils are doing in class and will share these judgements with you as part of your child’s end of year report - as we would usually do.
