KS1 SATS Information
To help inform teacher judgements, pupils in Year 2 will sit national curriculum tests in English and Mathematics, commonly called SATs.
The tests are a tool for teachers to help measure your child’s performance and identify their needs as they move into key stage 2. This also allows teachers to see how your child is performing against national expected standards.
The last compulsory KS1 SATs were administered in May 2023. They will now be optional.
Unlike KS2 SATs, KS1 SATs don't have to be administered according to a nationally-set timetable in a specific week. Schools are free to manage the timetable and will aim to administer the tests in the classroom in a low-stress, low-key way; some children won't even be aware they've taken them!
Please read with your child as often as possible (every day if you can). Research shows that children who read at home make better progress with their reading generally.
The National Literacy Trust which suggested that young people who read outside class were 13 times more likely to read above the expected level for their age.
It also follows a study from London's Institute of Education which suggested that children who read for pleasure are likely to be better at both Maths and English than those who rarely read in their free time. Please encourage your child to bring their reading bag to school every day.
