What are SATs?
2) Reading SATs
3) SPAG and Writing SATs
4) Maths SATs
These documents are designed to help teachers to make their judgements about what each strand or standard should look like in reality.
Some of the initial pages might seem a bit wordy, but we thought you might like to flick through to the actual photographs and examples later in the documents, which show some suggested outcomes for children working at different levels.

Practice SATs Papers
We have uploaded the official SATs papers from 2016 and 2017.
You are welcome to use these to help inform your understanding of SATs; to practise with your child bit by bit (e.g. focus in on certain question types); or to practise as an assessment at home.
We would respectfully request you don't use any 2018 and especially any 2019 papers with your children (nor if/when they go to tutoring) as we often use those papers in school to help inform our judgement on the run up to SATs. Whilst it's always helpful to have a practice, this gives us a skewed/false picture of how your child is really getting on.
Please note, the 2016 ones in particular are slightly different in that it was the first year of a new system, and some subsequent changes have been made over the last few years. For example, a few of the standards were amended from 2018 onwards.
