Our Year 6 children have excelled themselves again this year. They have worked so hard during our booster sessions together and really have taken their learning seriously. They have demonstrated real determination during the tests to do the best they can. It has been a pleasure to watch them concentrate. I have very mixed feelings about SATs week. On the one hand statutory assessment is essential in measuring each child's progress during their primary years but all of our children have so many special qualities and strengths in a million areas of the curriculum; achievements that SPAG test results would never show on one day at the beginning of May! I always tell the children that!
