A child scoring below the scaled score of 100 would be attaining below the national expectation Results will show the raw score, scaled score and whether the child has met the national expectation in each subject Teacher assessment data collated for writing and science using specific

assessment criteria Results reported to parents/carers: end of Summer Term SATs Timetable and Example Questions Reading Test: 50 marks - 60 minutes Questions will broadly assess a child's ability to fully understand the structure, meaning and

purpose of a passage of text. Example questions will test a variety of reading comprehension skills including: Fact retrieval e.g. Name the four types of building detailed within the piece. Structure or presentation e.g. Why do you think the author choose to present a table alongside the text? Inference e.g. "Why do you think the author has used the word "frozen" to describe the

character? Open-ended questions e.g. Explain how and why the author has chosen to end the story. Use two examples from the text.
