About the SATs

What are SATs?

Standard Assessment Tests (SATs) are exams designed to assess your child’s knowledge of the Key Stage 2 national curriculum. They are also used by the government to review the quality of education in schools.

The SATs are compulsory at state primary schools in England. They are taken in May of Year 6, when children are 10 or 11.

What is covered on the SATs?

The 2023 Key Stage 2 SATs cover these key learning areas:

  • SPAG (English spelling, punctuation and grammar)

  • English reading

  • Maths

Learn more about what is covered on each of the SATs papers.

Are SATs important?

SATs are important to give teachers and parents an insight into students’ strengths and areas for development, as they exit Key Stage 2 and enter Key Stage 3.

Some secondary schools may use Year 6 SATs results to group students into sets or streams. The best way for your child to enter Year 7 top of the class is to prepare thoroughly for SATs.

Unlimited online practice papers

With your Atom Nucleus subscription, you'll get unlimited online practice papers for KS2 English and maths.

Your child can take the tests as many times as they like and never see the same paper twice. No more rationing practice papers!

No more marking them either, as everything is instantly marked and analysed for you.

We're here to support parents every step of the way.

What age is Atom Nucleus suitable for?

Atom Nucleus is designed for children ages 7–11. Our Exam Prep packages are specifically for children preparing for exams such as the SATs and 11 plus.

How is Atom Nucleus tailored to my child's ability?

Atom Nucleus uses adaptive technology, which means that questions are displayed at an optimal level of difficulty for your child. This ensures they are stretched and challenged without becoming demotivated.

Is Atom Nucleus mapped to the national curriculum?

Yes – all of the learning resources available on Atom Nucleus are created by teachers and are mapped to the English national curriculum for Key Stage 2 and early Key Stage 3.

How many mock tests can my child access?

With Atom's Exam Prep Plus subscription, your child can take multiple mock tests and they will see completely different questions in every attempt. This means that no two practice tests are identical.

Do I need to supervise my child on Atom?

No, our platform is designed for your child to use independently. It's fun and easy to navigate, with helpsheets and videos to help them build and consolidate their knowledge.

What support does Atom provide?
