While autumn tests give a baseline from which to monitor progress within the school year, diagnostic spring tests are perfect for identifying strengths and weaknesses, with diagnostic commentaries included in the teacher guides. Summer tests for all subjects enable teachers to summarise attainment and progress both year-on-year and within the school year.

Year 6 assessments

Our year 6 assessments enable consistent progress and attainment monitoring across key stage 2. One set of reading, mathematics and grammar, punctuation & spelling papers is available for use in the autumn term, and one for use in the spring term ahead of the end of key stage 2 national curriculum tests. All year 6 teacher guides include an additional 70-page diagnostic guidance booklet to help identify gaps in learning and support further teaching.
