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.
