PLEASE note that the 2023 Key Stage 2 SATs were originally due to start on Monday 8th May 2023 but this has been shuffled back by one day to Tuesday 9th May due to the extra bank holiday for the King’s coronation.

Date Exam
Tuesday 9 May 2023 Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling – Paper 1
Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling – Paper 2
Wednesday 10 May 2023 English Reading
Thursday 11 May 2023 Maths Paper 1 (Arithmetic)
Maths Paper 2 (Reasoning)
Friday 12 May 2023 Maths Paper 3 (Reasoning)

Unfortunately this does mean that pupils will be taking their national assessment tests immediately after a bank holiday, possibly impacting attainment.

Everything can be made with machines but nothing compares to something made with hands and the heart.
