At the end of Key Stage 1 (Year 2) and KS2 (Year 6), the children complete statutory SAT (Standard Attainment Test) assessments.
What are SAT’s?
SATs (Standard Attainment Tests) take place at the end of year 2 and year 6 and are designed to test pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 programme of study respectively. All year 2 and year 6 children across the country are tested in English and Maths and this gives the government a clear picture of what standards look like. It also helps parents compare their child’s progress with children of the same age nationally. This is the third year that a year 2 and year 6 cohort has been tested on the new curriculum that was introduced in September 2014. Consequently, the testing process has been changed to previous years to account for this. The Keys Stage 2 results are published and inform the Department for Education ‘performance tables’.
