How can I help my child prepare for their SATs?

  • The biggest single influence on your child’s SAT marks will be their reading
  • Good attendance is vital. Please support us by ensuring your child is at school every day. Absence results in your child missing vital preparation for their SATs. 
  • Please ensure your child completes their homework to the best of their ability. 
  • Good readers can read questions quickly, and understand what they need to do. Continue to encourage your child to read every day, looking at both stories and non-fiction.
  • Times tables and division knowledge is essential in order for children to be well prepared for their Mathematics tests.
  • To help your child prepare for SATs, please encourage the use of revision books and websites listed below. More information will follow relating to being able to purchase revision books from school. These are an excellent resource in preparing your child for their SATs.
