About Optional SATs

Optional SATs papers were first created in 2003 alongside KS1, KS2 and KS3 SATs papers.

Optional SATs were designed to help teachers give children a relevant "SATs-like" assessment. They are available for Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 7 and Year 8.

Whilst not published for a number of years, Optional SATs are still a helpful and useful tool.
