Our Year 6 children will sit their SATs tests from today through until Thursday this week. We know that this is an important time and we wish our children all the very best but also recognise that whilst these are an important measure with regards to maths, reading and writing they do not measure all of the many and varied qualities that our Year 6 children have to offer. I am constantly in awe of how articulate and sociable our pupils are and the wide range of activities they undertake both in and out of school.
Good luck this week Year 6—Just try your hardest and I shall look forward to joining you for breakfast!
Special thanks at this time of year to the staff in Year 6—Mrs Bennett, Mrs Bown, Mrs Allcock and Mrs Deeley. They have done all they can to give the children an exciting and varied curriculum across the year and will be right behind them this week.
Years 5 and 6 are both off on residentials at the end of the week. I hope they all have a fantastic time. I really appreciate the staff organising trips such as these and am very grateful to them for giving up their own time to be there. Thank you.
