Assessments

Year 1 phonics screening check

Nationally, all children in Year 1 are assessed for their phonic understanding towards the end of the year. The check takes place in June when each child reads 40 words out loud to a teacher. The results are shared with you with their annual report and and their teacher will assess whether he or she needs extra help with reading. If your child does not pass the check, they will complete it again in Year 2.

Key stage 1

All children in Year 2 are required to complete a Key stage 1 test. At Bedmond Academy, we try to keep these as low-key as possible. The tests cover:

  • English reading
  • English grammar, punctuation and spelling
  • Maths

Your child will take the tests in the Spring Term.

Key stage 2

All children in Year 6 are required to complete assessments callled SATs.  These test your child’s skills in:

  • English reading
  • English grammar, punctuation and spelling
  • Maths
Your child will take these national tests in May when they reach the end of key stage 2 and you will receive the test results as well as the results of your child’s teacher assessments with their annual school report.
