Year 6 National Tests


At the end of Key Stage Two (Year 6) children will sit national tests.  These are in Mathematics, English Reading and Grammar, Handwriting and Spelling. 

The dates for the 2023 SATs are as follows:

Monday 8th May 2023 - Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar

Tuesday 9th May 2023 - Reading

Wednesday 10th May 2023 - Mathematics - Papers 1 and 2 

Thursday 11th May 2023 - Mathematics - Paper 3

In addition to the week of testing, teachers will be carrying out teacher assessments on the children's writing. This will happen throughout year six and will be reported to your child's secondary school along with the test results.

Below you will find further guidance on the SATS, including samples of the 2018 SATs papers for your information. Please do not complete the previous SATs papers (2019-2022) at home as we use them for our assessments in school. These tests help us to identify areas where your child needs extra support.
