Marland Hill Community Primary School

Together we will achieve more!

Year 6 Science SATs

Marland Hill has been selected by The Standards and Testing Agency (STA) to participate in the 2016 science tests. STA has commissioned the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER) to carry out these statutory tests.

The tests must take place on a day during the period Monday 6 June to Friday 17 June. A NFER test administrator will carry out the tests in school on an agreed day.  When this date is confirmed we will notify parents.

STA will select up to 10 of our pupils from Year 6 to take part in the science testing and we will be notified who these children are 5 school days before the test date.

All data collected by NFER during this exercise will be provided to STA. The test results will not be used for school accountability or performance tables and will be reported as national data only. Individual results will not be returned to schools or pupils.


As you know, this is an important time for Year 6 children who have all been working very hard throughout the year and will continue to do so to build upon learning in preparation for their SATs.


It would be greatly appreciated if you can continue to support us by making sure that all children are in school on time every day, not only in the week of the SATs tests.


If you have any queries, do not hesitate to contact us.


Thank you for your continued support.
