Assessment Information

SATs papers are the statutory tests taken by primary school children to test their knowledge of the national curriculum, as well as monitor the school’s progress as a whole.

Your child will sit two sets of SATs exams: one in key stage 1, when they’re in year 2 and around 6-7 years old, and a second in key stage 2, when they’re in year 6 and around 10-11 years old.

SATs are taken during the summer school term, generally in May of each year.


Key Stage 1 & 2 National Curriculum Tests

In both year 2 and year 6, your child’s SATs tests measure their grasp of basic English and mathematics. See the tables below for more information:
