Your child has been working incredibly hard throughout the year and we are all very proud of what they have achieved. It is really important that your child is in everyday for these tests so that they have the chance to demonstrate the fantastic progress they have made.


In order to help your child perform to their maximum potential in the tests, please make sure that they have a relaxing weekend without any last-minute ‘cramming’ or strenuous activity. Please make sure that your child goes to bed at a sensible hour so that they are fresh and well rested each morning. School staff will be running a ‘SATs breakfast’ each morning from 8:00 am for those that have signed up for it. If your child is not having breakfast at school, please make sure that they arrive at school on time and having had breakfast at home.


Should your child be unwell on the morning of the tests, please try to send them in for the tests and they can be collected straight after. However, if your child is unable to come in due to severe sickness, then please call the school immediately to inform us of their absence.


We would like to thank all of the children for their effort and hard work over the past year and wish them the very best of luck for next week.


Many thanks,



Richard Moore

Deputy Headteacher
