KS1 SATs information
At the end of Year 2, children take SATs in:
- English grammar, punctuation and spelling, or GPS (optional paper, schools can decide whether to use it)
KS1 SATs were overhauled to reflect changes to the national curriculum in 2016.
The Government previously announced plans to scrap KS1 SATs but have since decided that the tests will take place in May 2023. It will become optional from September 2023.
