Children in both key stages are required to sit tests in English and Maths.
Children at the end of Key Stage 1 have to take 3 tests -Reading Comprehension, Spelling, Grammar & Punctuation and Writing. These are marked internally within school and results reported to parents at the end of the year.
Children at the end of Key Stage 2 are required to sit 3 English papers - Reading Comprehension, Grammar & Punctuation and Spelling. These are marked externally. Writing is teacher assessed and marked internally. In addition they also sit 2 Maths papers - Arithmetic and Mathematical Reasoning.
The results from these tests are published in DfE Performance Tables annually. However, we are unable to publish the results from last year’s cohort (2016/2017) as the quote from the DfE below explains:
“The DfE’s policy is to suppress publication of figures relating to a cohort of 5 pupils or fewer. This is intended to reduce the risk of individual pupils being identified from published data.” (October 2016).
