Key Stage 2

In May all Y6 pupils complete end of Key Stage 2 tests. The results of these test are used to measure the individual progress a pupil has made in their time at primary school before moving on to their secondary school. These results are also used by Ofsted & the Local Authority to measure the success of the school against other schools nationally.

In 2016, there were new Key Stage 2 tests in maths, reading and grammar, punctuation & spelling. These tests did not use levels but assessed pupils against a new national standard, reflecting changes to the National Curriculum.

Writing was not assessed in a test, but as a teacher assessment of pupils’ writing over a number of pieces of work, measured against a list of statements.
