SATS information:

Week commencing  Monday 13th May 2019

Welcome to our SATs information page where you can find resources and information about the tests our Year 6 pupils will be taking in ‘that week in May’. Tests are a part of life these days but we want to make them as least stressful as possible for both pupils and parents, so we are collecting together information in this section to help answer any questions you and your child may have. We host breakfast at school in the hall for all year 6 children during the test week in May – more details are sent nearer the time.
