Year 6 SATs Arrangements

Dear Parents / Carers,

As I am sure you are aware the SATs tests begin next week (13th – 16th May). We know that both staff and pupils have been working extremely hard for this and we praise all of their efforts. Where possible, please ensure that your child is not absent during this week, as they will be unable to take the tests.  The purpose of this letter is to inform you about the arrangements the school has put in place for next week.

All tests will take place in school classrooms.

The tests will start promptly each morning following registration at 8.25 am.

Should your child be late to school please do still ensure their attendance as arrangements can be made for them to complete their tests later in the day. If your child cannot attend school for any session please phone the school office as soon as possible 01527892867.

Equipment required
Pupils will need:

  • Pens (black)
  • Pencils
  • Rubber
  • Sharpener
  • Ruler

This will all need to be kept in a see-through holder.  This does not need to be a pencil case, it can be a plastic wallet / plastic bag etc.

Pupils may bring a water bottle to each test with water in only.  The bottle needs to be transparent with the label removed.

We are also pleased to announce that we will be holding a breakfast club during SATs week specifically for year 6 pupils.  Eating breakfast is a very important part of preparation for each day.  Children use a lot of energy and need to be well ‘fuelled’ before the morning session.  The breakfast club will be held in the DT room each day.  Toast and orange juice will be on offer and there will be no cost involved for the pupils.

We wish the pupils well for next week and would like to thank them again for the hard work leading up to this point.

Yours sincerely,

Mr Clarkson

Assistant Headteacher
