2019 KS2 SATs
The 2019 KS2 SATs will take place in the week commencing 13th May 2019. The tests took place over four days.
Children in Year 6 (those aged 10-11 or those born between September 2007 and August 2008 inclusive) will take these tests in their normal school classrooms (in the UK). SATs papers will be taken in Maths, Reading and SPaG under formal exam conditions. These papers will be marked externally whilst separate teacher assessments in Writing and Science will be marked by their teachers.
2019 marks another year where there will not be a KS2 Science sampling test, that will take place in 2020.
2019 is the fourth year of 'new-style' Year 6 SATs tests under the new national curriculum.

2019 SATs Results
As with 2016, 2017 and 2018, the 2019 Year 6 SATs recorded children's marks using the scaled score system. Instead of children's marks being compared using an unusual total (for example 60, 90 or 120), all raw marks are moderated and converted to a scaled score out of 100. As baffling as this may seem, it's actually very useful.
If children score 100, they have reached the expected standard. If they fall short of 100, they have not met the expected standard and if they score above 100 then they have exceeded the expected standard. The real benefit of scaled scores is it makes it easier for primary schools, secondary schools, LEAs, Academy Trusts and the Department for Education (DfE) to compare results to previous years.
Each school's results will be made available to their headteachers in July 2019 via the NCA tools website. Every school's performance will be made public in December 2019 to create the 2019 school league tables.
If you are interested in seeing how your child's school performed in the 2019 SATs then look at the Department for Education (DfE) website that maintains up to date and historical school league tables.
2019 KS1 SATs
The 2019 KS1 SATs will take place at some point throughout May 2019. The precise days of the tests varies from school to school as they are given a greater degree of flexibility than KS2 SATs. Thus they would will be completed at some point between 1 May 2019 and 31 May 2019.
Children in Year 2 (aged 6-7 or those born between September 2011 and August 2012) will take these tests in their normal school classrooms (in the UK). SATs papers will be taken in Maths, Reading and SPaG (optionally) under formal exam conditions. These papers will be marked externally whilst separate teacher assessments in Writing and Science will be marked by their teachers.
2019 will be the fourth year of KS1 SATs tests under the new national curriculum.
