Keystage Two Booklets

Last week saw our Year 6 pupils joining with hundreds of thousands of their peers across England and Wales to complete their Key Stage 2 National Assessments – known as SATs. Every year, all Year 6 pupils are formally assessed across a week of assessments or exams which get sent off to be marked, with their results made public in July. Pupils complete SATs exams on grammar, punctuation and spelling; reading comprehension and Maths – arithmetic and reasoning.

This year, there has been a lot of media coverage about the Key Stage 2 SATs exams and the much debate around the amount of stress they put the Year 6 pupils under. At Beckley, our Year 6 pupils showed a magnificent attitude towards each of their 6 SATs papers. They approached their tests in a calm, confident, controlled and composed manner and tried their absolute best. We are incredibly proud of the attitude our Year 6 pupils showed and they were a real credit! Well done to our Year 6 pupils!
