What are SATs? 

SATs tests take place in England in Year 2 and in Year 6. The Year 6 SATs tests take place during the Month of May, with the tests spread out across the week. It is likely that children will go through past SATs practice papers with their teacher in class, whilst preparing for the SATs test.
