Historic position

A Key Stage 2 Science sampling test was not created in 2013 as it was decided a new biennial pupil-level sampling system would be introduced in 2014. Approximately 9500 children will be randomly selected (based on 5 children from 1900 schools). C
hildren will sit the test within a two week window from Monday 2nd June 2014 and it will consist of three separate papers, each  taking no longer than 25 minutes to complete. No individual school or child will be subsequently identified.

From 2014 calculators may not  be used in Maths SATs tests.

From 2013 the English tests included a new SpaG format where grammar is tested.

From 2011 KS2 SATs Science tests were replaced with teacher assessments in Science but a random selection of schools should take national sampling Science tests to monitor standards.

For Maths tests children require:

  • A pen and pencil.
  • A ruler displaying both cm and mm.
  • An "angle measurer" (protractor).
  • A mirror.
  • Tracing paper.
  • Where a calculator is allowed, this is a basic model (non-scientific is fine).
