Year 2 SATs
Key Stage 1 SATs consist of formal assessments in maths, reading and writing and take place at the end of Year 2.
We have lots of resources available to help you consolidate key literacy and numeracy concepts at home. Start by reviewing our Key Stage 1 worksheets to see what your child is learning in Years 1 & 2. Then work through our KS1 SATs revision course. Finally, let your child have a go at some KS1 SATs past papers and our exclusive KS1 SATs practice papers.
For even more ideas we have a KS1 SATs pack with 26 teacher-recommended activities to help with reading comprehension, spelling, writing, addition and subtraction, time, shape and measurements, counting and problem solving, and handling data.
On 14 September 2017 the Department for Education announced that Year 2 SATs will be made non-statutory (so schools will be able to choose whether to adminster them or not) from 2023. Until then children will continue to be assessed in May during Year 2.
A beginner's guide to year 2 tests, the KS1 SATs success pack explains everything you need to know about how your child will be tested, teacher assessment, SATs levels, how the results are used and why you don't need to worry! You'll also find 26 activities to help support your child's learning at home with games and fun, so get your SATs preparation started today.
Until 2015, papers produced from 2005 onwards were still used in schools every year to set the tests for students in Year 2, so most official KS1 SATs papers were for teacher-use only (apart from 2003 and 2004 papers).
In May 2016 children took new-style KS1 SATs tests for the first time. The KS1 English SATs 2016 and KS1 Maths SATs 2016 and KS1 English SATs 2017 and KS1 Maths SATs 2017 are available for free download from TheSchoolRun.
