What are National Curriculum Tests?

SATS (which stands for Standard Assessment Tests) is the common name used for National Curriculum Tests. Children are assessed at the end of Year 2 (Key Stage 1) and Year 6 (Key Stage 2) in reading, writing and maths. The Key Stage 1 results are all based on teacher assessment; the Key Stage 2 results are a combination of teacher assessment and externally-marked national tests. Year 6 children also have to take a Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation test.  Their writing level is decided by teacher assessment based on a combination of genres and a collection of writing pieces from the whole year.
The children in Year 1 also have to take an external test for their phonics.  They will be asked to read a list of words (some are real words, some are not) in order to assess how they apply their phonological knowledge.
