Optional SATS papers

Optional tests for years 3, 4 and 5 and years 7, 8 and 9 in English, mathematics and science are no longer available. The optional tests were fully integrated with the present national curriculum and statutory testing protocols. As a new national curriculum was introduced in the 2014 to 2015 academic year, the optional tests have been discontinued.

Some schools may still choose to use the tests to inform their own assessments.

Answers are found in the Mark Schemes/Teachers' Guides. Only some papers are listed here - more papers will be found by following the links on this page or going to the Worksheet Finder.
