I am not sure if one exists with the words that children are expected to know - if so I cannot find it - does anyone know? Thanks.

There is a spelling list of words that children are expected to know by the end of KS2 - but it is not a list of words on which they will be tested in the SATs. A lot of people were caught out by that last year.

The idea is that children should have learnt the kinds of strategies they need to use to spell the words on the list; they are then tested using words of similar difficulty.

You might find this useful.
