Key Stage 2 (Year 6)

At the end of Year 6. all children in the country take these tests which assesses if the children are at the ‘Expected Standard’ in Reading, Writing, Maths and GPS.  The tests are formal papers taken by the children over the period of a week.  The papers are then sent away to be externally marked.  

The tests are in Reading, Maths and GPS.  Writing is assessed through Teacher Moderation which is internally and externally moderated.  

The results of the pupils show various levels of information, such as the number who are at the Expected Standard, those exceeding this, the Average Point Score of the children and the Progress the children make.   

Expected Standard

Learning comes first at Oaklands and we are pleased that the results show this.  In each subject, the children who achieved the expected standard in Reading, Writing and Maths are above the national average.
