As you may be aware, your child will be assessed using the End of KS1 tests throughout the month of May. These are known as SATs (Standard Assessment Tests) and are used nationally for all children in Year 2. The primary aim of these assessments is for the government and Local Authority to look at trends across schools throughout England. Within schools, these tests can be a helpful measure of children’s progress and this is used alongside the teacher's judgement of their work throughout the year.

The tests are presented as booklets with colourful pictures and characters. They are composed of two reading comprehension papers (sections to read with pictures, with corresponding questions) and two maths papers (one arithmetic and one reasoning/problem solving). Here is a website where you can find past papers if you want to take a look KS1 SATs Papers - SATs Papers KS1 [1999-2022] - Free Downloads (


These assessments are carried out in small groups with a familiar adult. The children are unaware that they are taking place to prevent any unnecessary pressure, as the style and format of questions is similar to many of their daily activities. This is the format we have used over the last few years and it works really well.

Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
