Pupils who fail to master basics will have to resit SATs at secondary school

For the first time ever, the government is introducing a chance for 11 year olds to resit their SATs test if they did not make it the first time round. The resit however takes place in Year 7. Research has shown time and time again that kids who fail to make the required level are more likely to fail at their GCSEs so this resit gives them another chance to make it. While it has it pros, we do hope that parents don’t slack in their initial commitment to support their children to excel in the tests the first time round.

Currently, around 120,000 pupils a year fail to master the basics in national curriculum tests for 11-year-olds. (That is a very high number)
