Key Stage 2 SATs

Key Stage 2 SATs: What Parents Need to Know

At the end of Year 6, children will sit tests in:

  • Reading
  • Maths
  • 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.

When will the tests take place?

The Year 6 KS2 SATs will be administered from Monday 13th May 2024 – Thursday 16th May 2024

How will the SATs be marked?

The Government will give scaled scores to children. The score needed to reach National Standard is 100.
