Pupils will sit:
- Two Maths papers: Arithmetic and Reasoning
- Two English Reading papers.
Your child’s school may also sit optional papers: one on Spelling and one containing a mix of Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling.
None of the tests are strictly timed — teachers will make sure all pupils have an appropriate amount of time to complete each test.
Papers are marked by a teacher within the school and given a score out of 115. A score of 100 or more means your child is working at the ‘expected standard’ — the level the government expects pupils to reach by the end of KS1.
The scores are also used to measure the performance of the school, and to give teachers insight into how pupils are progressing.
