Key Stage 2 SATs
Key Stage 2 SATs: What Parents Need to Know
At the end of Year 6, children will sit tests in:
- Spelling, punctuation and grammar
These tests will be both written and marked externally, and the results will be used to measure Coleridge’s performance compared to other schools. Your child’s marks will be used along with teacher assessments to give a picture of their attainment and progress.
The reading test will be a single paper with questions based on three texts.
Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling
This has two parts: a grammar and punctuation paper needing short answers and a spelling test of 20 words.
Maths consists of three papers:
Paper 1—will involve fixed response questions, where children will have to give the correct answer to calculations.
Papers 2 and 3—will involve questions linked to problem-solving and reasoning.
