Year 1 is a busy but fun year! It marks your child’s transition from the continuous provision environment of reception, where children learn mostly through play, to a more academic environment. Children will be expected to sustain concentration for longer periods of time and to take part in formal lessons.

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. In Year 1, the children complete a statutory phonics screening test in June and are assessed in Reading, Writing and Maths through teacher assessment.
