Standards at Bishops Waltham Infant School
Every year children in Year 2 complete tasks and tests which help teachers to make assessments about the level your child is working at. These tasks and tests are known as SATs. The assessments take place throughout the year during your child's learning. The tests take place solely during the month of May. At Bishops Waltham our children make excellent progress. We consistently achieve higher than National results and Hampshire results. This is due to our outstanding teachers, excellent curriculum and rigorous target setting and tracking of each individual child-ensuring all children receive the support or challenge they need, when they need it, in their time at our school.
In Year 1 children complete a Phonics Test which consists of reading 40 words using phonics-some are made up words and some are real words. Phonics is a very small part of reading, as our fantastic results at the end of Year 2 show. This test takes place during a week in June.
In Year R, we are judged on children achieving a Good Level of Development. These assessments are on going and take place throughout the year.
Please look at the current year to view our fantastic results.
