SATs Information for Parents

In May, children in Year 2 and Year 6 will take the National Curriculum Tests at the end of KS1 and KS2. 

These tests, known as SATs, assess children's attainment in Reading, Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPAG) and Maths, against that of pupils nationally. 

Your children will be having lots of practice to become familiar with the format of the tests and to ensure that they have covered everything that they need to succeed. During the test period, you can help by being supportive and encouraging, ensuring that the children get plenty of sleep and by making sure that they are in school, punctually, every day.        

If you would like to find out more about the tests, a Government information leaflet is available and may be downloaded here.

If you or your child have any concerns about the tests, please speak to his/her class teacher who will be able to give you more information.It is important that the children don't worry about SATs but some may become a little anxious, please be reassuring; like you, we know that they will do their best and will be proud of them.
