Year 6 SATS results explained

Children in year 6 are now receiving their Key Stage 2 SATS results.

But what do they mean?

Marks have been given between 80 and 120, with 100 considered average and children achieving less than that likely to require support to reach the level expected of Year 6 children.

Nationally, little more than half of children tested reached the Government’s standards in reading, writing and mathematics, fuelling criticism of the revised system.

Individual schoolchildren could have been given their individual results by their teachers but school tables won’t be published until later in the year.

In the meantime, the Government has published the guide below – click the link below the image to download it – to explain what it all means to parents.
