National Curriculum Tests (SATs)

Children at the end of Key Stage 2 (Year 6) sit tests in Reading, Maths and SPaG, commonly know as SATs. 

The tests for Year 6 take place on a specific day from Monday 13th May 2024 to Thursday 16th May 2024. 

Following the Government’s response to the 2017 consultation on primary assessment, on 20 July 2022, DfE announced that assessments at the end of KS1 would become non-statutory from the academic year 2023 to 2024.

The reception baseline assessment (RBA) will replace the end of KS1 assessments as the baseline for cohort level primary progress measures. It became statutory in the academic year 2021 to 2022, and the reception cohort from that year reach the end of KS1 in the academic year 2023 to 2024.
