What are SATs for?

Key Stage 2 (Year 6) SATs are compulsory, and are predominantly used as a way for both parents and teachers to learn more about their child’s academic strengths and areas to work on. They give teachers the chance to see how children are doing in comparison to their peers not only within the same school, but also nationally.

At Albion we must stress, children are not only assessed on their academic progress through SATs. Teachers regularly assess the children through marking their books and by talking to the children over time.

Our Priority

On average, children enter the nursery and reception below average expectations. Accelerated progress is made throughout children's time at Albion to ensure they are ready for their next phase in education. The government and Albion governors focus on the progress made by the children from their starting point until the end of Year 6.

To guarantee accelerated progress is made, one of our key priorities is to ensure excellent pedagogy which can deliver the new curriculum effectively. To fulfill this priority we will:

  • Ensure all teaching is differentiated effectively to enable maximum progress of all groups of pupils
  • Teachers plan and deliver effective early reading sessions in EYFS & KS1
  • Strengthen pupils’ early reading skills by ensuring that they have access to a systematic and rigorous programme of phonics teaching
  • Ensure reading is taught consistently across the whole school and skills are embedded throughout, fostering pupils love of books 
  • Teachers plan and deliver stimulating and engaging  mathematics sessions while challenging all groups of children 
  • Embed Mathletics in the classroom as well as homework
