SATs (Standardised Assessment Tests)

    These exams are used to evaluate pupils in the core subjects of Science, Maths and English and are based on the criteria stipulated in the British Curriculum.

    The exams are carried out at school but are sent to an external examiner for evaluation and correction, therefore guaranteeing the objectives for our pupils are equal to those of the British pupils of the same age. SATs are taken at the end of Key Stage 2 (Year 6).

    We are delighted with the results and would like to congratulate the pupils for working extremely hard. Their hard work and enthusiasm has paid off and we would also like to thank all the staff involved, for their dedication in getting our pupils to achieve this success.
    We had 100% of our pupils working at a Level 4 in Mathematics with 22% gaining a level 5, which is above the national average and not expected to be reached until Secondary school, with 5% even gaining a Level 6.
    55% of our pupils also achieved Level 5 in Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar a fantastic achievement.
