KS1 National Curriculum Tests

Do you have a child in year 2 ?  If so, they will have taken the national curriculum tests, also known as SATs, in May.

Your child’s teacher will use what they have seen in the classroom, as well as the results of these tests, to help judge how well your child is progressing overall in maths, reading, writing and science.  The combined results will also help teachers identify if your child needs further support, and to put this in place as early as possible.
