KS2 SATS 2024 Timetable


KS2 - Year 6 SATs Week (13th -16th May 2024)


Our Year 6 children will be completing their SATs between Monday and Thursday. Some children can be nervous about the tests but they have been preparing for them during their time in Year 6 and have completed practice papers so they are familiar with the layout, question types etc.


Plenty of sleep, a good breakfast and lots of positive encouragement will help them to do their very best which is all we would ever ask from them. Please can we ask you to ensure that they are in school on time each morning.


If in an exceptional circumstance, your child is unable to attend school on one of the days next week, please can you inform us as soon as possible as unless suitable arrangements can be made, this will impact your child’s results.


KS1 -Year 2 children will complete their SATs tests usually in the last two weeks before May half-term (tbc)


The Year 2 tests are not strictly timed to reduce the pressure in a test situation. There is no set timetable for the Year 2 SATs other than they need to be completed in May.









Anti-Bullying Week 13th-17th November 2023

To support the focus of the week, Olton will be taking part in different ways to promote discussion and further awareness. This year, all classes will be creating a class poem or rap or song which will be displayed in our main corridors, alongside reminders about what to do and how to get support and how to “make a noise about bullying”. In addition to this there are a few other activities below:


Monday: Odd Socks Day! Children and Staff are invited to come to school wearing odd socks with their school uniform to celebrate our uniqueness and individuality!


KS1 and KS2 special assembly. KS2 - there will be a live online lesson on Monday which will focus on when “banter” might become “bullying”.


During the week- a special lesson will look at practical strategies for support and the difference between “banter” and when this can change and become “bullying”.


We are also pleased to share that Olton Primary has signed up to the United Against Bullying Programme and we shall be working with all of our children to strengthen their ongoing well-being about bullying in everyday life and the online world
