About KS1 SATs Papers

KS1 SATs papers is the contracted form of “Key Stage 1 SATs papers” and children take these tests in Year 2. Hence why plenty refer to these tests as “Year 2 SATs papers” or “Year 2 SATs”.

SATs papers at KS1 in 2016 and 2017 were “formal” tests. Exam timings were not strictly ahered to to help limit the pressure on Year 2 children. 

Following the news that children will no longer take formal SATs papers in KS1, we are now in a time of uncertainty. It is likely that children will still sit KS1 SATs papers but as a less formal assessment. At this moment in time, next year’s SATs Year 2 remains a mystery

What will replace KS1 SATs papers for 2018? Nobody is sure.

Which KS1 SATs papers should I use?

Year 2 SATs papers published before 2016 remain useful to children. Giving your child past SATs papers KS1 before their tests is the best way to prepare them. Whilst there aren’t many available, Year 2 SATs practice papers are incredibly valuable.

There aren’t many past KS1 SATs papers available. Use the English Reading Year 2 SATs sample papers from 2015 as they are valid. The KS1 SATs sample papers in Maths from 2015 are also of a modern structure. Likewise, the SPaG sample sats papers KS1 are very useful.

The 2016 SATs were the first modern “new structure” SATs papers for the new national curriculum. These were joined this year by the 2017 SATs, a further set of KS2 SATs papers for children to practise with.

Do not confuse SATs papers KS1 with “SAT papers KS1″, or”KS1 SAT papers”. These are different tests (often pronounced “S.A.Ts”) that take place in the USA.

Since 2011 we have offered free Year 2 SATs practice papers to millions of parents and teachers. Other websites (like testbase ks1 and emaths ks1) have tried and failed to compete.  Thank you for your support!
