At the end of Year 2, all pupils will take SATs in reading, SPAG (spelling, punctuation, and grammar), and maths. The reading test is made up of two papers, each worth 50% of the marks. The SPAG test consists of two papers; one is a spelling test of approximately 15 minutes and the other focuses on punctuation and grammar.
The maths test is also split into two papers. The first is arithmetic where the basic understanding of place value and number is tested. The second is reasoning, where children need to apply their problem-solving and reasoning skills to show their understanding.
