2018 SATs – Y2 & Y6

As a statutory requirement, pupils in Year 2 and Year 6 must complete the end of key stage assessments in May 2018.

KS1

Children will complete the following assessments during the month of May: maths reasoning paper, maths arithmetic paper and two reading papers. They will also complete a grammar, spelling and punctuation assessment which isn’t compulsory but will support with teacher assessment. The children will be assessed in writing, but they won’t undertake a writing assessment – writing is assessed against the interim frameworks (KS1 Interim Frameworks) using teacher assessment and judgement  .

Watch the videos below for further information about the KS1 SATs

Below are samples of each of the papers – you might find it useful to use these at home to practise with your child.

KS2

Year 6 pupils will sit their SATs during the week beginning Monday 14th May 2018. They will undertake the following assessments: mental arithmetic, maths reasoning paper one, maths reasoning paper two, reading paper and a spelling, grammar and punctuation assessment. Children will not sit a writing assessment – writing is assessed against the interim frameworks for the end of Key Stage Two (KS2 Interim Frameworks).

The previous national curriculum levels have been scrapped, and instead children are given scaled scores.

You will be given your child’s raw score (the actual number of marks they get), alongside their scaled score and whether they have reached the expected standard set by the Department for Education (‘NS’ means that the expected standard was not achieved and ‘AS’ means the expected standard was achieved).

The range of scaled scores available for each KS2 test is:

  • 80 (the lowest scaled score that can be awarded)
  • 120 ( the highest scaled score)

The expected standard for each test is a scaled score of 100. If a child achieved a scaled score of 99 or less, they won’t have achieved the expected standard in the test.
