SATS WEEK 2014 - 12th -16th May 2014
This page provides dates and other information about the KS2 SATs, as well as useful websites to support revision.
SATs week this year will run from Monday 12th May 2014 until Friday 16th May 2014.
A small number of children may attempt the Level 6 papers (please remember that Level 4 is the nationally expected level for children at the end of KS2, level 6 is expected by the end of Year 9!) which will take place during the same week.
The timetable for the week will be placed here later in the school year:
Each year a selection of schools are required to take Science SATs and English Writing SATs. This is to maintain the accuracy of teacher assessments across the country. We will know later in the year if our school has been selected to take part in these tests.
In 2014, there will be a few changes. There will no longer be a calculator element to the Maths SATs, whilst there will be changes this year to the format of the Reading SAT.
