### What is the SATs Key Stage 2?

Primary school teachers regularly give out practice SAT tests. Children take them home and already stressed out parents have to set aside time in their busy diaries to manage their completion. There is an easier way, which is why I formed School Entrance Tests, which grants every parent easy access to the right practice papers and test-taking tips. That means improved scores – as well as reduced anxiety for both parents and child alike.

The SATs Key Stage 2 are designed to assess a child’s proficiency in reading, writing, and mathematics. Specifically, the Year 6 SATs assess:

- Reading: This includes a comprehension test where children read a passage and answer questions about what they have read. The questions assess their understanding of the text and their ability to interpret information.
- Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling (GPS): This involves assessing a child’s ability to use grammar, punctuation, and spelling correctly in their writing. This test includes questions on vocabulary, grammar, and punctuation rules.
- Mathematics: This includes a range of questions that test a child’s understanding of mathematical concepts such as number, algebra, geometry, and statistics. The test also assesses their ability to solve mathematical problems.

Overall, the Year 6 SATs are used to provide information about a child’s academic performance and to help identify areas where they may need additional support. The results of these tests are also used to inform secondary school placement decisions

### Why are the Stage 2 SATs taken in in Year 6?

The Year 6 SATs (Standard Assessment Tests) are national tests that primary school children take at the end of their final year of Key Stage 2 (typically aged 10-11 years old.

### What are the other key stages and their age groups?

Not sure what Key Stage is Year 4? What year is Key Stage 2? These are the types of question that this page will address. The key stages that make up the national curriculum in England and Wales are as follows. Included are the different age groups that children are usually in these key stages for, depending on their birthday within the academic year:

- Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)– ages 3-5 (Nursery and Reception)
- Key Stage 1– ages 5-7 (Years 1-2)
- KS 2– ages 7-11 (Years 3-6)
- Key Stage 3– ages 11-14 (Years 7-9)
- KS 4– ages 14-16 (Years 10-11)

### Mock 2023 SATs week

- When your child comes to sit their actual 2022 SATs papers they will have practised this process multiple times.
- Most schools will run more than one mock SATs week. Often at the end of Year 5 and early on in the Spring term.
- Your child will know which classroom they will be sitting in and the time they will have to complete each test.

### SATs KS2 Maths and English

- KS2 Maths and English are normally included in the end of year school report.
- The results for KS1 are not published but you can ask the school at the end of the summer term if you’d like to find out about them.
- KS1 SATS are teacher assessed while KS2 exams are marked externally.
- The National Curriculum tests (SATs) are designed to assess if your child is working below, at or above the national average level for children of their age.
- The SATs results provide you and the school with useful information about how your child is doing.

**SATs KS1 for Year 2**

There’s 6 SATs KS1 papers:

- 2 English reading papers;
- Two English grammar, punctuation and spelling papers; and
- 2 maths papers

In contrast to the KS2 SATs (year 6);

- A scaled score of 100 or more means a child is working at the expected standard. While a score below 100 indicates that a child hasn’t reached the government expected standard. The maximum possible score is 115, and the minimum is 85.
- For KS1 SATs, you may not receive your child’s actual SATs scores, unless you ask for them.
- However, you will be told whether they are working at the expected standard as part of the end of year report.

First of all, Key Stage 2 SATs, taken at the end of Year 6 help alert teachers and the school to specific areas where support may be needed. The results are also scrutinised by Ofsted when they inspect schools to determine the consistency in performance and provide evidence of standards improving or declining.

### SAT’s 2021 Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 1 cancellations

**The Department of Education**** **has now cancelled both KS1 and KS2 SATs tests for 2021.

Many teachers and most teacher unions had called for scrapping SAT’s 2021 for the second year in a row.

Here is our summary of the specific SATs 2021 cancellations:

- The Year 1 phonics check is cancelled in 2021.

- All KS1 SATs 2021 for Year 2 pupils are cancelled.
- KS2 SATs 2021for Year 6 pupils are cancelled.
- Also, the KS2 English grammar, punctuation and spelling test 2021 is cancelled.
- KS1 and KS2 teacher assessments in science will also be cancelled in 2021.

Will there be Primary School League Tables 2021?

Hence there will be no primary school performance data from which to produce primary school league tables.

Although there will still be teacher assessment in English reading, writing and maths at KS1, and other assessments at KS2, will remain.

Are SATs important?

All SATs are an important marker in your child’s education and development.

- A good SATs score shows that your child is progressing well in their education.
- Also, that they are ready for the next Key Stage to stretch them further.
- Plus, secondary schools use SATs results to determine streaming.

**What do the SATs measure?**

As a result, the SAT’s test school pupils in the three core subjects. Plus:

- Your pupils’ school success in teaching these core subjects (English, Maths and Science); and
- Your child’s progress.

Therefore, the SATs are now carried out at the end of Key Stage 1 (Year 2) and Key Stage 2 (Year 6). In 2010 Key Stage 3 SATs were scrapped and have been replaced by formal teacher assessment in each of the National Curriculum subjects.

Similarly, it was confirmed on 14 September 2017, that Key Stage 1 SATs will be made non-statutory (schools will be able to choose whether they want to take it) in 2023. Until then all Year 2 pupils will be subject to these assessments.

Most noteworthy is that the content of these assessments is prescribed by the National Curriculum.

## What does Key Stage 2 consist of?

Key Stage 2 consists of Years 3-6 and pupils’ ages range from 7-11. During May of Year 6, the final year of Key Stage 2, children undertake 3 National Curriculum Tests: Reading, Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling and also Mathematics.

Once again these assessments comprise both tests and teacher judgements.

The judgements at Key Stage 2 differ from Key Stage 1 because of the different roles played.

Reading and Mathematics also have fewer judgements as the focus is on the test scores.

Subsequently, Science has only one judgement, as in Key Stage 1.

The Teacher Assessment Framework is very helpful in explaining the finer details of this process.

## Which subjects are tested in KS2?

Keystage 2 SATs exams therefore comprise:

**English**

Paper 1: English Grammar & Punctuation – 45 minutes – 50 marks

Paper 2: English Spelling – 20 words, about 15 minutes – 20 marks

**Mathematics**

Paper 1: Arithmetic – 36 minutes (30 questions) – 40 marks

Paper2: Reasoning – 40 minutes (21 questions) – 35 marks

Paper 3: Reasoning – 40 minutes (21 questions) – 35 marks

No Science sample testing will be done in 2019. In selected years (like 2018), sample tests were done in some (about 1900) selected schools to a group thought to be representative of the (Year 6) population as a whole. In those years, papers consisted of:

**Science**

Biology: 25 minutes – 22 marks

Chemistry: 25 minutes – 22 marks

Physics: 25 minutes – 22 marks

### What are the KS 2 outcome codes?

The list of full KS 2 outcome codes are as follow:

**AS**: expected standard achieved**NS**: expected standard not achieved**A**: absent from one or more of the test papers**B**: working below the level assessed by KS2 SATs**M**: missed the test**T**: working at the level of the tests but unable to access them (all or part of a test is not suitable for a pupil with particular special educational needs)

- 80 – lowest possible scaled score
- 120 – highest possible scaled score

As of June 2020 there will be a new framework, namely the MTC (Multiplication Tables Check Assessment), that will become statutory. Schools can, however, start implementing it in this academic year for them to get to know the assessment framework. The MTC will be a multiplication tables check for all multiplication tables up to and including 12 x 12. This will be administered to Year 4 pupils.

### What is Key Stage 2?

This covers a child’s time in year 3, year 4, year 5 and year 6. Sometimes the years of Key Stage 2 are divided into:

- Lower KS2 (LKS2) – years 3 and 4
- Upper KS2 (UKS2) – years 5 and 6 (formerly known as ‘Juniors’).

Use our KS2 resource collections to supplement your teaching of Years 3 through 6. At the end of Key Stage 2, year 6 are tested within Maths, English and Science in SATs exams, and since 2016 given a scaled score for these.

**What are the Year 3, Year 4 and Year 5 age groups?**

In this key stage, children are usually ages between 7 and 11 years old. They are usually ages 7 and 8 in year 3, aged 8 and 9 in year 4, aged 9 and 10 in year 5 and ages 10 and 11 in year 6.
