Stressed about SATs? Relax with our
SATs tuition service
Why SATs? Why SATs Tuition? The purpose of SATs tests is to help teachers – and you – learn more about your child’s strengths and weaknesses. Teachers are able to compare how well your child is doing with their peers, both in their school and across the country. They also measure how much your child has improved from one Key Stage to another.
SATs Tests are compulsory in KS1 for children in Year 2 and in KS2 for children in Year 6. Children are tested on what they have been learning at school. In Year 2 your child will take SATs tests in reading, grammar, punctuation, spelling, and maths. They will also be assessed by their teacher on speaking and listening, writing and science. In Year 6 your children will take SATs tests in English reading, grammar, punctuation and spelling, and maths. These will be marked externally. Other subjects including writing, speaking and listening and science are teacher assessed.
Although your child may become stressed over these tests it is important to know that it is not possilble fail. SATs tests simply reflect how well your child has understood what he or she has learned at school. The more relaxed your child is, the better he or she will perform.
