Dear Parents/Carers,

Happy New Year and welcome back to the new term!

Year 2 and Year 6 SATs:

As you are aware pupils in Year 2 and Year 6 have Standard Assessments this year.  Much of the teacher assessment for Year 2 is carried out in May.

All of the tests for Year 6 take place in the week 9th to 13th May, 2016.  The DfE allocate the day and time at which all primary schools must take each of the test papers.  It is extremely important that all Year 6 pupils complete all the tests as these are used to group pupils in their next school.
