Pilsley C of E School




Assessment in our school takes place continuously throughout the school day, in all subject areas.

In addition to this formative assessment, we also undertake regular summative assessment in order to gauge attainment and identify learning needs.


Year 2 children will take the KS1 SATs national assessments in Maths, Reading and Spelling, punctuation and grammar. These will take place anytime throughout May in a very relaxed format to ensure there is no pressure on the children.


Year 6 children will take the KS2 SATs national assessments in mid-may. The subjects tested are:

  • Arithmetic
  • Mathematical reasoning
  • Spelling
  • Punctuation and Grammar
  • Reading


 Writing is teacher assessed in both KS1 and KS2, there is no SAT for writing.


Year 2 and Year 6 parents are invited to attend a parent's information evening.






Early Years Foundation Stage (Reception)
Children in the EYFS will continue to be assessed against the EYFS profile.  This consists of ‘Ages and Stages’ criteria and Early Learning Goals.  At the end of Reception these are reported as Emerging, Expected or Exceeding the Early Learning Goals in each area.  If children are assessed as ‘Expected’ they are meeting age related expectations.
