Assessment in maths, takes many forms and is made up of a combination of statutory and non-satutory activities.

  • AFL - all Year groups - assessment for learning takes place continuously and informs teachers of children's attainment and progress within their maths lessons. 
  • Diagnostic tests - Year 1 - Year 6 - these are tests given to the children once per term. They are directly linked to the topics and content delivered in the daily lessons and provide teachers with information about how children are progressing against key areas of learning.
  • Multiplication Tables Check - Year 4 - this is statutory test which is taken by Year 4 pupils usually in May. The test is administered digitally using computer programme. A DFE information leaflet can be found below. 
  • SATs tests - Year 2 & Year 6. SATs stands for Statutory Assessment Tasks. Children in Year 2 will take these tests during the month of May. Children in Year 6 will take their maths SATs on specific days usually during the second week in May.
