In the week beginning the 14th May 2018 our Year 6 children will be taking part in the KS2 SATS tests. Our Year 2 children will also be taking part in KS1 SATS tests in the week beginning 21st May 2018. These are National Curriculum tests that the Government ask each school to complete with the children. Firstly, I would like to thank you and your child for all the hard work that is taking place in school and at home every day in preparation for these tests.
At Newton Tony CE VC Primary School, we are continually driving ourselves forward to succeed academically. But, I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that these tests do not celebrate the gifts and talents that we also value at our school. Our children who love gymnastics, ballet, football, craft, animals and the love of outdoor learning. They do not celebrate their fantastic singing ability, kindness towards their friends and their ability to always try their best.
The marks your child receive in the test will tell us something but not everything. They are all unique and special, there is no test in the world that can measure how wonderful they all are.
