Parents should follow the general advice from schools about supporting your child’s learning throughout the year. You do not need to prepare your children for the tests. Your child’s teacher will ensure your child is prepared.
Your child’s teacher will be able to answer any queries about the tests, or you can visit www.gov.uk/STA for more details.
If you want to see a sample of the tests your child will take, we have published some here: www.gov.uk/government/collections/national-curriculum-assessments-2016-sample-materials
In June we will provide another leaflet to explain how and when the tests and assessments will be reported to parents. We will also provide information about how the results are used. Visit
