KS2 SATs 2014


As you will no doubt be aware, the Year 6 children will shortly be taking their SATs tests.  SATs stands for Statutory Assessment Tests.  The there are two reading tests, a grammar, spelling and punctuation test and two maths tests. Teacher assessment is now used to grade writing. SATs are taken by every child in Year 6 throughout the country, with very few exceptions.

Both children and staff have been working very hard to make sure they are as prepared as they possibly can be for the tests with lots of revision and practise of past papers.

The first test is on Monday 12th May and the last on Thursday 15th May:


12th May


13th May


14th May


15th May

English - reading test

(1 hour)

Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling Test

(45 minutes)

Maths - Paper 1

(45 minutes)

Maths - Paper 2

(45 minutes)

The children will take the tests on their normal classroom, but will be expected to work in silence. Teachers are not able to help them, but are able to read maths questions to them if needed.

The tests are sent away and marked by specially employed external markers. We should receive the results in early July, so your child will receive his/her test level and teacher assessment level shortly afterwards.

During SATs week, please make sure your child has a good night’s sleep with some quality relaxation time and a good breakfast on the day of the test.

If your child misses any test in any subject, they can still sit the test on their return to school.

If you would like any further information, please speak to Mrs Taplin, Mrs Fenning or Mrs Doherty.
