What Are The KS1 & KS2 SATs Exams?
The Key Stage 1 SATs Exams are taken by Year 2 pupils in primary schools across England. These exams help teachers and parents understand students’ specific strengths and weaknesses pertianing to Maths, English and Science.
Teachers are able to assess individual student’s progress in the context of the larger classroom and other schools. The exams are also used to assess the likelihood of children achieving specific results in their KS2 SATs and GCSE Exams.
The Key Stage 2 SATs Exams are taken by Year 6 pupils in primary schools and play a large part in assessing students’ performance from one Key Stage to another. The exams are also used to predict children’s likelihood to achieve specific results in their GCSEs.
Almost all secondary schools group children into sets or streams based on their academic ability. The SATs results play a big part in the decision-making process. The Boost Education KS2 Crash Course is designed to enhance each child’s learning and test their readiness for KS3.
What Do The KS1 & KS2 Crash Courses Cover?
Key Stage 1: The course consists of formal assessments in Maths and Reading that take around 3 hours in total to complete. It includes informal assessments in Science that take place throughout the year.
The course uses group-based work and interactive activities for learners that are designed to test their understanding of the various subjects. It also covers revision of Reading, Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar.
We will be working through a mixture of questions that will include multiple choice and writing short answers. For Maths, we will be hosting lessons and exam practises on Arithmetic and mathematical fluency. Lesson plans are made available to parents upon registration.

Here’s What the Parents Have to Say…
Boost Education has undoubtedly helped my daughter to excel at school, and improved my son's results in a very short time period. The teaching quality is excellent and the atmosphere friendly and focussed. I would recommend Boost wholeheartedly as a great value for money education centre.
I would strongly recommend parents to Join Boost. It's very child orientated and learning can be fun. My kids tutor is very friendly, patient and approachable and my kids are very comfortable with her. My younger son says he prefers going to Boost rather than School
I was interested in enrolling my daughter to the maths GCSE programme since I felt she was capable of studying this at an earlier age. The tutors and the additional resources have really helped her. The rewards scheme has also motivated both my kids and I love the structure of the programme where they are assessed every month.
