Frodsham Primary Academy Performance Data

Primary school tests and assessments are designed for use in accountability and to enable benchmarking between schools. As these assessments will be returning for the first time since 2019, without any adaptations, the results will not be published in key stage 2 (KS2) performance tables in academic year 2021/22. This is due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. 


What are National Curriculum Tests?

SATS (which stands for Standard Assessment Tests) is the common name used for National Curriculum Tests. Children are assessed at the end of Year 2 (Key Stage 1) and Year 6 (Key Stage 2) in reading, writing and maths.

The Key Stage 1 results are all  based on teacher assessment; the Key Stage 2 results are a combination of teacher assessment and externally-marked national tests. Year 6 children also have to take a Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation test (G, P & S).  Their writing level is decided by teacher assessment based on a combination of genres and a collection of writing pieces from the whole year, this assessment is moderated by the Local Authority.

Children in Year 1 also have to take an external test for their phonics.  They will be asked to read a list of words (some are real words, some are not) in order to assess how they apply their phonological knowledge.
