All schools are required to administer external tests to certain groups of pupils during the school year.
- The Year 1 phonics screening test is administered during the week beginning Monday 8 June 2020.
- The Year 2 SATs tests are administered at any time within the calendar month of May 2020.
- The Year 4 multiplication tables check can be taken at any time between Monday 8 June to Friday 26 June 2020.
- The Year 6 SATs tests take place from 11-14 May 2020.
Here at St Matthew’s, we will be administering the Year 2 SATs tests during the week beginning Monday 4 May and the week beginning Monday 18 May.
It is important that all children on roll complete these statutory assessments. The results enable the school, the local authority and the government to measure the progress that pupils are making during their time at St Matthew’s.
Consequently, no term-time holiday requested during these dates will be authorised by the school leaders.
We feel sure that all parents will appreciate the importance of these tests and we thank you for your continuing support in this matter.
