What are SATs?
SATs are statutory assessments carried out by all state schools. They assess how your child’s abilities compare nationally with other children in the same year group.
Key Stage 1 SATs
Your child will be assessed at Key Stage 1 (KS1) during Year 2, at age 7. The tests will be carried out in the May of Year 2 and children will take assessments in Reading, Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling, and Maths. There are lots of ways you can help at home to prepare your child for their SATs tests, please download the documents below for information.
Key Stage 2 SATs
Further SATs testing takes place in Key Stage 2 (KS2), when your child will take part in National Curriculum tests in reading, mathematics and spelling, grammar and punctuation. These tests take place in May each year towards the end of Year 6 (usually age 11). Writing is judged through teacher assessment, this is quality assured through moderation with other schools and the Local Authority.
At the end of Key Stage 2, the government measures the progress the children have made during their time at school by comparing the pupils' end of Key Stage 1 SATs scores to their end of Key Stage 2 SATs scores.
The national measure for progress is '0'. Anything below this is below national standards and above '0' is above national standard.
Please note - all statutory assessments were cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic therefore these results do not reflect current performance
