A: Does the site have revision sheets?

or being part of the school team

Q: How important are SATs at the end of Key Stage 2?
A: SATs provide individual pupil information about the National Curriculum levels that pupils have achieved at the end of KS2. Results are based on both tests and teacher assessments. Secondary schools use the results to form grouping/ability sets etc. as SATs results are passed on to the secondary schools when pupils transfer. SATs results are reported to the DfES with individual schools` performance published in performance tables, usually referred to as `league tables`. As with KS1 and KS3, the end of KS2 statutory assessments are part of the Government`s commitment to raising standards. Each LEA is also judged on the performance of its schools and compared nationally.
Q: How important are SATs at the end of Key Stage 3?
A: The tests in english, mathematics and science at the end of Key Stage 3 help pupils with their teachers choose the appropriate courses to follow leading to GCSE or vocational qualifications.

Q: How long are the tests?
A: 7-year-olds - less than three hours
11-year-olds - Five and a half to six hours altogether
14-year-olds - Seven hours altogether
Q: How will I get my child's results?
A: The school will send you a report what National Curriculum levels your child has reached.
Q: What are key stage 1 statutory assessments?
A: These provide a `snapshot` of a child`s attainment at the end of this key stage (end of infants).

They consist of `Tasks` or `Tests`.
They are not exams!
They are designed in such a way that they help teachers assess children in some detail in English and Mathematics.

All children in their final year of Key Stage 1 must be assessed. All children who are moving on to the Key Stage 2 (junior school) programmes of study in the next school year are regarded as being in their final year of Key Stage 1.

Not all children take the tests since they may not be suitable forms of assessment for some children. Teachers enter children for tests and tasks according to their knowledge of the children`s abilities.

If the children are not taking part in tests, the tasks support teachers` judgements about the children`s attainment.

At the end of the SAT`s, teachers then report both the task and test results and teacher assessments for the core subjects. Core subjects are English, Mathematics and Science. There is not a test or task for Science.

Tips of the day
Include some raw vegetables in every meal. Many of the vitamins and minerals are in vegetables are lost through cooking, so raw food is as good as it gets.
