The national curriculum tests taken by children at the end of Key Stages are more commonly known as SATs (standard attainment tests).
Teachers assess children at the end of Key Stage 1 (age seven) but children take nationally set SATs at Key Stage 2 (age 11) which are used to judge schools' performance.
The SATs tests are now optional for Year 2 in Key Stage 1 but Teacher Assessment continues to be the fundamental tool for reporting on children’s progress in school. Parents are informed of the Teacher Assessment at the end of Year 2. At the end of Key Stage 1 when a child is in Year 2, the average is Level 2. Level 3 is above average.
What subjects are taken?
At Key Stage 1, teachers assess seven-year-olds in reading, writing, speaking and listening, maths and science. Most children should get a level 2. This is moderated by the local authority but not published nationally.
At Key Stage 2, 11-year-olds take 5.5 hours of tests in English (reading, writing and spelling) and maths (mental arithmetic) The expected Average achievement for a child in Year 6 is Level 4 but because it is an average some children will achieve a Level 3 and some a Level 5, which is considered above average. The results of the Key Stage 2 SATs are reported individually to parents and the school results are included in Local Authority and National statistics.
IT IS IMPORTANT FOR PARENTS TO NOTE THAT ALL YEAR 6 CHILDREN MUST BE IN SCHOOL EVERY DAY DURING SATS WEEK TO TAKE THEIR KS2 ENGLISH AND MATHS
