It has been confirmed that SATs will resume for 2021, with the following changes:
Key Stage 1 SATs have been withdrawn this year and teacher assessments will be used instead.
KS2 SATs will take place between Monday 10th and Thursday 13th May. There will be assessments in maths, reading, and writing, but not in GPS this year.
The year 4 multiplication check will remain voluntary this academic year.
Year one phonic screening will go ahead as planned, as will the year two catch-up group.
Please do not plan any holidays during this period.
