The on Wednesday we begin the National Tests. These tests, whilst important, should be taken as part of a whole with the classroom based assessments and judgements of the children. We begin on Wednesday with the reading test. We will then do the first of the maths tests on Thursday. We complete the tests next Tuesday 12th of May. Your co-operation in ensuring children are in school would be gratefully appreciated.
It is important to note that should any children be getting unduly worried abut the tests, or are upset then please let us know and we will ensure that they will be ok. You will receive the results around the end of term, July, and this year will be slight;ly different. You will receive a progress report that will show you the progress made from year to year join the tests. As we have not seen these yet I cannot give any more information, however, here is a link to the parents guide to the tests:
Have a nice week.
