    Apart from the Year 2 SATs papers, which are level 2 and 3, there is a Level 1 task pack but it is very hard to come by, perhaps ask in a local primary school as I can never seem to find it on the NCA website!
    http://www.brightminds.co.uk/publish.asp?what=sats&page=1#english-key-stage-1-sats has some to get you started ( although you have to sign up for their free newsletter!)

    A good alternative are the Wigan Assessments ( http://www.wiganschoolsonline.net/curriculum/maths/blockassess.shtm ) which cover all years from Reception to Year 6 so will certainly cover the levels you need.

    A further alternative is the Rising Stars series of tests, again there are ones for each year group, but the levels can sometimes be a little "iffy"

    Oh, and I think emaths has some early KS1 papers too!

    The Sandwell Early Numeracy Test can be used to assess from p levels to 2A. It focuses mainly on number. It will give you a standardised score, number age and approximate NC level.
    Not sure if this is what you're looking for.

  4. Brilliant, thank you. I will ask my HoD which he would prefer. The students are already eagerly anticipating a test that they can have a "proper try" at - no, I am not being sarcastic, they genuinely want to feel achievement.

    I teach Year 6 so the majority of my children are eagerly anticipating the SATs in summer, they too enjoy the sense of competing against themselves and the test! I think it is all to do with the way any test/exam is approached, as a way of showing what you can now do that you couldn't before, whether you are working at level 1 or level 6! We're having a bit of a practice this week and they've all asked if I can look out some more for them to do as I haven't apparently found enough to try!

    I have found that most children can experience some success in a KS1 Maths test, found on Emaths, very few would come out as only a L1.
