SATs

SATs tests are compulsory national tests for primary school pupils. Children in England are required to take Standard Assessment Tests (SATs) at the age of 11 (school year 6) for the following subjects: reading comprehension, mathematical reasoning , arithmetic and SPaG (spelling, punctuation and grammar.)

Pupils in Year 6 will sit their SATs in the first half of the Summer term. Recently, there have been many changes to this by the National Government however we will keep you updated throughout the year.
