Broom Valley children's results 


Please note:  The government will not publish KS2 school level data for the 2021 to 2022 academic year. The information below is archived data from the 2018 to 2019 academic year because the government recognise that the data from the latest 2021 to 2022 year may no longer reflect current performance.

Broom Valley children's assessments.

Do you have a child in Year 1:   If so, they will be taking the statutory Phonics Screening Check In June.  

What is the Phonics Screening Check?

Children in Year 1 throughout the country will all be taking part in a phonics screening check during the same week in June.

Children in year 2 will also take the check if they did not achieve the required result when in Year 1 or if they have not taken the test before.


Reporting to Parents and Carers

By the end of the summer term we will report each child’s results to their parents/ carers. This will confirm if the child has met the standard threshold. Children who do not achieve the expected level in year 1 will retake the test when they are in Year 2.

Here is a video to provide more information:

Do you have a child in Year 4?   If so, they will be taking the statutory multiplication tables check (MTC) in June.

What is the MTC?

The MTC is an on-screen check consisting of 25 times tables questions. Your child will answer 3 practice questions before moving on to the official check, and will then have 6 seconds to answer each question. On average, the check should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete.  The purpose of the check is to determine whether pupils can fluently recall their times tables up to 12, which is essential for future success in mathematics. It will also help your child’s school to identify pupils who may need additional support.

How can you help your child at home?

At the end of Year 2, children take KS1 SATs in :


  • This is made up of two separate papers.
  • Paper 1 consists of a selection of texts, with questions interspersed.
  • Paper 2 comprises of a reading booklet of a selection of passages. Children will write their answers in a separate booklet.
  • Each paper should take around 30 minutes, but children are not to be strictly timed, as the tests are not intended to assess children’s ability to work at speed.
  • The texts in the reading papers cover a range of fiction, non-fiction and poetry, and get progressively more difficult towards the end of the test.


  • This test is made up of two papers.
  • Paper 1: Arithmetic, worth 25 marks and taking around 15 minutes.
  • Paper 2: Mathematical fluency, problem-solving and reasoning, worth 35 marks and taking 35 minutes, with a break if necessary. There are a variety of question types: multiple choice, matching, true/false, constrained (e.g. completing a chart or table; drawing a shape) and less constrained (e.g. where children have to show or explain their method).
  • Children are not allowed to use any tools such as calculators or number lines.


When will the KS1 SATs take place?

The tests will be administered throughout May.  Unlike KS2 SATs, KS1 SATs don’t have to be administered according to a nationally-set timetable in a specific week. Schools are free to manage the timetable and will aim to administer the tests in the classroom in a low-stress, low-key way; some children won’t even be aware they’ve taken them!


At the end of Year 6, children take KS1 SATs in :  

  • Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling, Reading and Maths.
  • These tests will be written and marked externally, and the results will be used to measure Broom Valley’s performance compared to other schools. Your child’s marks will be used along with teacher assessments to give a picture of their attainment and progress.

When will the SATs take place?

  • w.c. 9th May 2023

How will the SATs be marked?

The Government will give scaled scores to children. The score needed to reach National Standard is 100.  SATs results will be reported to parents in the Year 6 end of year reports.

 Children are awarded one of the following Teacher Assessment Judgements in Writing:

  • Working Towards – working towards the expected standard for their age
  • Expected Standard – working at the expected standard for their age
  • Greater Depth – working at greater depth within the expected standard and has a strong understanding of the curriculum
