Why do children sit SATs?  The national curriculum is organised into blocks of years called ‘key stages’. At the end of each key stage, we are required to report your child’s progress.  In KS1 your child’s level of attainment will be judged by the class teacher against set standards. This is called Teacher Assessment.  Teachers use the child’s work (including spoken work and homework) to work out what level your child is at in each area.  To show that pupils have met the standard, teachers will need to have evidence that a pupil demonstrates consistent attainment of all the statements within the standard.  Formal tests (SATs) are also given to help teachers make this judgement.
