FAQ: Will my state primary prepare my child for the selective senior school assessments?
Ofsted judges that 90% of state primary schools provide a good or outstanding education, so at one level they absolutely do, but it is not in the explicit remit of a state primary to prepare their pupils for entry to selective senior school. Their focus is on preparing their pupils to thrive in non-selective secondary schools and, because of the emergence of league tables, to perform well in the SATs exams that take place in May of Year 6. The assessments and requirements of the selective schools are very different to the SATs both in terms of timing (Sept-Jan of Year 6), difficulty level and what is being assessed.
