2016 National Tests (SATs) – Information for Parents (Key Stage 2)

2016 National Tests

For an increasing number of today’s parents and carers, the national curriculum tests are not the entirely unfamiliar concept they once were. However, after many years of familiarity, 2016 sees an overhaul of the tests to match the newly updated national curriculum. This guide helps to explain what you can expect and how you can support your children in the run-up to the tests.

The government has recently published some more information and produced a video about the 2016 National Curriculum Tests at the end of Key Stages 1 and 2 (often referred to as SATS).


These guides will help explain the 2016 National Test content as well as offer advice on how you as parents can help prepare your children for the tests.

The documents can be seen below and can also be downloaded.
