Year 2 

You may or may not be aware that end of Key Stage 1 tests (SATs) which were mandatory in previous years are now optional for schools to administer.  

At Hurst, as in many schools, we have made the decision to continue using the SATs tests as our end of year formal assessments to help inform our teacher assessment judgements.  The children will complete these assessments in exactly the same way as previous year 2 cohorts but during the first two weeks after half term (3 – 14 June 2024).  

See information sheet, below for further details.

If you have any questions then please speak with your child’s class teacher or myself.

Kind regards

Mr Cawthorne
