Dear parent/carer,
As expected and discussed on SATs information evening the following changes have been made to SATs this year.
An additional bank holiday in honour of the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III will take place on Monday 8 May 2023. This date had previously been announced as the first day of the 2023 key stage 2 (KS2) test week in England.
The Standards and Testing Agency (STA) have changed the KS2 test schedule next year. KS2 tests will take place in the same week with tests following the usual order – but each test will take place one day later than originally planned.
This means that the new schedule will be:
• Tuesday 9 May: English grammar, punctuation and spelling (GPS) papers 1 (questions) and 2 (spelling)
• Wednesday 10 May: English reading paper
• Thursday 11 May: mathematics papers 1 (arithmetic) and 2 (reasoning)
• Friday 12 May: mathematics paper 3 (reasoning)
Many thanks
Mr Ruffett
Head of Year 6
