Year 6 assessment week will be the week beginning 17th May. These assessments are in place of the Statutory Attainment Tests which the children will not be taking this year. This week allows staff, children and parents to see the progress that the children have made this year as well as gaps in their learning which can then be taught and set as homework in the summer term. Attendance is very important for this week as the children will have to sit the assessments at a later date if they miss them.
Please reassure your child/ren that this week is nothing to worry about: we are all aware that the children have missed months worth of education in school over the last two years. It is simply to gain an understanding of where we are in order to help us improve and to show off what we are good at.
The year 6 staff are very impressed with how hard the children are working and we have every faith that this week will just give them a chance to show off how much they have learnt.
