Your child can get SAT tuition for as low as £21.60 per session. The price of each private tuition session depends on how regularly and for how long your child takes tuition with us. Book a free trial session with us and you can find out how affordable private tuition with GoStudent can be for you.
Although it may seem too young to start tutoring, studying for SATs is the perfect time to start laying the groundwork for later levels:
GoStudent can help give your child support with private SAT tuition as well as offering tuition for other levels that your child might study for:
Your child isn't tied into one subject with GoStudent either. Maybe your child needs support with some particular subjects now but as their needs change we can also offer tuition across different subjects and levels at secondary level.
Although it may seem too young to start tutoring, SAT is the perfect time to start laying the groundwork for later levels:
In the United Kingdom, SAT stands for standardised assessment tests, a set of tests administered by the Standards & Testing Agency in Year 2 and Year 6. These tests are also referred to as the national curriculum assessments or tests. The results of these tests are used by the school and the government to see how children are doing with the learning material. Some schools also use the Year 6 results to determine which stream or group students should be in for secondary school.
Yes, this is compulsory testing for both Year 2 and Year 6. However you don’t need to worry about it too much. These tests are about getting a sense where students need extra help, individually, and as a school compared to national results. The results also help the government make decisions about curriculum changes. The Department of Education has announced plans to scrap the Year 2 SATs, or at least to make them non-statutory, in the next few years.
For the Year 2, SATs students are tested on:
Students are also assessed by their teachers on their progress in science, though this is not measured with an official test. The tests at this level are really about making sure students have taken on board the learning material from Key Stage 1 before they move on.
For the Year 6, SATs students are tested on:
These tests are more involved than the KS1 tests, and are designed to give teachers and parents an idea of where students will possibly need more support, like private tutoring. They also allow the teachers of their secondary school to make decisions about which streams, classes, and sets they may need to put them in for Year 7.
If your child is finding the idea of standardised testing stressful, it can definitely be helpful to organise some private SATs tuition beforehand. For Year 2 students, this may look like doing maths revision, as well as working on their reading skills. This can be a good plan anyway, as they move into Key Stage 2, the learning material gets a bit more complex so ensuring a solid foundation in their KS1 skills is a good idea.
For the KS2 SATs, it’s worth sorting out some SATs revision time with a private tutor. Because the results of these tests can place your child in certain streams for secondary school, it’s a good idea to make sure they do their best work on the SATs. It doesn’t need to be a big production – they can even do revision online for the SATs. You can connect them with an online private SATs tutor that knows the kinds of questions that will be asked and how to best prepare for them.
The exam papers change from year to year, so there is no set answer to this question. However, this is the general breakdown:
Key Stage 1 SATs
Key Stage 2 SATs
Private SATs tuition involves helping your child review the learning material, as well as practising on similar questions so they feel prepared and confident going into their SATs.
Online SATs tutoring is a great way to fit private tutoring sessions into your busy schedule with no travel time. It’s not like a SATs online revision course, where there isn’t any individualised help or feedback. You connect with an expert on the GoStudent platform, who will help you find the right SATs tutor for your child’s learning needs and level, from a wide-range of experienced tutors from across the UK.
