"Safeguarding is a stength of the school" - OFSTED

Year 3

Please Click HERE for more information on what will be taught throughout the year. 

SATS & End of Year Assessments
There are SATS tests in English and Maths. The statutory SATS take place in Year 2 and Year 6 and these results are reported to the government. In Year 3 – 5 the children complete the optional SATS and these results, along with teacher assessments throughout the year inform the final judgement.
As you can see, we have a packed curriculum. In order to meet all the requirements of the National Curriculum, homework plays a vital part in our year. The children will need a quiet place to complete their work, away from distractions. As a rule, they will have between 15 and 30 minutes every night. All homework will be written down in their homework diaries.If the children need support with their homework it is important that we all support them with it. The children should ALWAYS attempt homework by themselves but should they be struggling or becoming confused please do help them with it. Once again, if there are any problems, please let me know.
