Key Stage 1

Statutory Assessments

Year 1

At the end of Year 1, children complete the national phonics screening check. Children are asked to read aloud 20 ‘real’ words and 20 ‘made-up’ words to their teacher. The results of this check are reported to parents/carers and the Department for Education during the Summer Term.  This year, the assessments will take place from 13th – 17th June 2016.

Further details will follow later in the year.


Year 2

A new set of KS1 national curriculum tests replaces the previous tests and tasks for the children at the end of KS1.

The new tests (taken during May 2016) consist of:

  • English reading Paper 1: combined reading prompt and answer booklet
  • English reading Paper 2: reading booklet and reading answer booklet
  • English grammar, punctuation and spelling Paper 1: spelling
  • English grammar, punctuation and spelling Paper 2: questions
  • Mathematics Paper 1: arithmetic
  • Mathematics Paper 2: reasoning

This year a scaled score system will be used to report the outcomes of these tests, combined with ongoing teacher assessments, to the Department for Education and to parents/carers in the Summer Term.

The following sample papers have been published by the Department of Education

New for this year …

Cursive (joined up) handwriting.

Everyone in KS1 is learning to join their handwriting (including the teachers!)

All children have been given a laminated sheet in order to practise at home – felt tips should wipe off quite easily. If you are able to, please help your child(ren) to start their letters in the correct place and make sure they are forming the letter the proper way round.
