Optional SATs were exams used in some schools to measure students' progress at the end of Years 3, 4 and 5. From 2016, the SATs system has been overhauled to reflect the new curriculum. These papers are the 'old-style' optional SATs, but can still be used to help your child prepare for end-of-year tests. For information about optional SATs and how they are used in schools, read out parents' guide to the Y3, Y4 and Y5 SATs to find out.
