Sandwell Early Numeracy Test

Assess pupils' ability with numbers and identify specific numeracy skills requiring targeted teaching.

Administered on a one-to-one basis, this assessment has been designed to identify specific number skills that require targeted teaching and to monitor the impact of teaching interventions. It comprises SENT–R for pupils aged 4–8 years, and SENT KS2–KS3 for pupils aged 8–14 years.

The assessment explores five strands of basic numeracy skills: identification, oral counting, value, object counting and language. You can also use it for children with Special Educational Needs, to identify targets for an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) and to provide information to support decision-making within the SEND Code of Practice.
