KS1 SATs Papers

KS1 SATs papers were taken by pupils in school year 2 (6-7 years old). Formal KS1 SATs papers stopped in 2004 and were replaced with individual tests and tasks that are assessed by children's teachers.

We at SATs-Papers.co.uk still provide the original QCA past SATs papers from 2003 and 2004 and they are available to download below, completely FREE of charge.

Whilst children no longer take KS1 SATs papers, the KS1 past SATs papers taken by pupils in 2003 and 2004 remain highly relevant to their KS1 teacher assessments. Below you will find all available KS1 past papers, completely FREE SATs past papers to download and practice with.

    Since 2005, teacher assessments have covered English, Maths and Science. These assessments attempt to score how your child has performed in their KS1 tasks and tests: reading, writing (including handwriting and spelling) and maths. The tasks and tests are taken at any time the school chooses and they usually last for less than three hours in total. The results are not normally reported but are used to help the teacher assess your child's work. The teacher assessment is likely to be moderated by a school's local authority. This is to make sure teachers make consistent assessments of children's work.

    In KS1 English SATs papers, pupils used to sit several tests to evaluate their learning. Only in 2003 and 2004 were the exams formally taken and internally marked. Since then, teacher assessments have been used. The teacher assessments cover reading, writing and spelling. They can be taken at any time during the school year and they normally last for less than three hours in total.

    As with English, KS1 Maths SATs papers are no longer formally examined. Instead, pupils sit individual teacher assessment tasks to estimate their current learning performance.
