Tests and assessments

Year 1 phonics screening check

The check will take place in June when your child will read 40 words out loud to a teacher. You’ll find out how your child did, and their teacher will assess whether he or she needs extra help with reading. If your child doesn’t do well enough in the check they’ll have to do it again in Year 2.

Key stage 1

Key stage 1 tests cover:

  • English reading
  • English grammar, punctuation and spelling
  • maths

Your child will take the tests in May. You can ask the school for the test results.

You’ll be sent the results of your child’s teacher assessments automatically.

Key stage 2

Your child will take national tests in May when they reach the end of key stage 2. These test your child’s skills in:

  • English reading
  • English grammar, punctuation and spelling
  • maths

The tests last less than 4 hours. You’ll get the results in July.

The school will send you the results of your child’s tests and teacher assessments.

So many of the brilliant sporting events our children attend wouldn’t be possible if it wasn’t for the amazing @AshtonSSP Leaders.

They are perfect role-models for our #TeamHP kids - always kind, supportive and helpful.

Thanks from all at Headley Park 👏

A great @CST_Schools round-robin of football this afternoon with our friends from @VPPBristol and @CathPrim.

Lovely to see 2️⃣9️⃣ children given the opportunity to try out their skills against each other - the matches were played in a tremendous spirit!
