Parents SATs Information

 
 
 
 
 

National curriculum tests (commonly called SATs) are held in May.

The results are an opportunity to compare children nationally to ensure that we are helping children to master the basics in English and mathematics, and make progress. They are also an important tool to help teachers identify children who may need additional support, and make sure this is put in place as early as possible.

KS1 tests can be taken any time during May and they are not strictly timed. Most children will not know they are taking them as teachers will incorporate them into everyday classroom practice.
