Year 2 Statutory Assessment Tests (SATs)


Year 2 children will undertake SATs across May this academic year.  These test provide some evidence of how the children are performing in Reading, in English and Mathematics.  Teacher Assessment is how we arrive at our final judgements at the end of this key phase of learning.  The children's achievement is reported in the 'end of year school report.'

Year 6 Statutory Assessment Tests (SAT's)


The Role of SATs

The UK SATs curriculum aims to assess the level your child is working at. It’s an opportunity to compare pupils nationally across England to ensure that schools are helping pupils to master the basics in English and Mathematics.


Children sit their Key Stage 2 (KS2) SATs in Year 6. These tests are taken on set dates, under exam conditions and are externally marked.

Pupils are currently tested in English and Mathematics. Papers are split as follows:


  • English reading: one paper
  • English: grammar, punctuation and spelling two papers: (1) spelling (2) punctuation and grammar (including vocabulary)
  • Mathematics: two papers: (1) arithmetic (2) mathematical reasoning
  • Mathematics: one paper on mathematical reasoning.


Nearer the time, parents/carers will be sent further communications with regard to dates and helpful information for you and your child.
