Dear Parents/Carers,

The SATs week is fast approaching, where all children in year six will take part in the national end of key stage assessments. All the children have been working very hard towards their SATs and this is an incredibly important time for them.  It will be a very busy week, so please ensure that children are getting a good night’s sleep before each test day.

The timetable for SATs week is as follows:

Date: Morning
Monday 14th May Paper 1 – English grammar, punctuation and vocabulary

Paper 2 – spelling

Tuesday 15th May English reading test
Wednesday 16th May Mathematics paper 1 – arithmetic

Mathematics paper 2 – reasoning

Thursday 17th May Mathematics Paper 3 – reasoning


It is vital that all children are available to attend school on these days, for both the morning and afternoon slots and that they arrive on time. If you have any appointments for these dates, please contact the school as soon as possible.

We will be holding a breakfast club each morning from  Monday the 14th to Thursday 17th  from 08:15am in the hall. This will be a good opportunity for the children to get a free healthy breakfast and relax on those mornings.

If you have any questions about the administration of the end of Key Stage test or the organisation of this week, please feel free to contact the school office to make an appointment to see one of the Year 6 team.

Many thanks,

Yours sincerely,

The Year 6 team

Obviously, year 6 is an important year. In May we will be sitting our end-of-key-stage tests and it is incredibly important that the children do the best they can. Having said that, it is also incredibly important that our year 6 children enjoy their final year in primary education and get involved in as many creative and inspiring projects as they can.  Another  feature of our year 6 ethos is that our pupils are ready to make the transition from primary to secondary school, so although academic achievement is crucial, we also strive to enliven our curriculum so that our year 6 pupils are ready for the next stage in their education.
