SATs tests have been designed to give a measure of attainment in three subjects areas: Maths, Reading, and Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar.
These tests are set and marked externally, and the results are used to measure the school’s performance (for example, through reporting to Ofsted and published league tables). Your child’s marks are used, in conjunction with their teacher's assessment, to give a broad picture of their levels of attainment.
