In the week beginning the 14th May 2018, our Y6 children will be taking part in the KS2 SATS tests. These are National Curriculum tests that the Government ask each school to complete with the children in Year 6. 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 love gymnastics, ballet, football, martial arts, craft, animals and outdoor learning. SATs do not celebrate our fantastic singing ability, kindness towards friends and the ability to always try our best. The marks our children will 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.
