Dear Parents and Carers,

Year 2 SATS
Well done to our children in year 2 for working so hard on their SATs which they started this week. Year 2 will complete their SATs week commencing 16th May. It is very important that our year 2 children are in school for these statutory assessments. If you have any questions or concerns regarding KS1 SATs, please contact your child’s class teacher.

Year 6 SATS
Next week, it is our year 6 children who will be taking their SATs papers. The tests take place between Monday 9th and Thursday 12th May and it is vital that all children are in school and on time each day. On the day of each test we will be providing a ‘SATs Breakfast’ from 8am in the year 6 area. The children will have toast with a selection of toppings, fresh fruit and fruit juice. There will also be games and activities set up. This is an excellent way to get the children into school relaxed and ready for the tests. Please note that if a child is absent they will not be able to re-sit the test and will therefore not be given a level – absence should be avoided at all costs please. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.

Our sincere apologies for needing to move the planned outreach session for Dyslexia earlier in the week. To confirm, the remaining sessions will
take place on:

Dyslexia Outreach: 

Tuesday 14th June 9am - KS2 Hall and Tuesday 14th June 6pm - Virtual

Managing Transition:

Tuesday 5th July 9am - KS2 Hall and Tuesday 5th July 6pm - Virtual

Yesterday, Mrs Lawrence and I were delighted to share with you our plans for YR-Y6 Platinum Jubilee Celebrations on 27th May. We are all very much looking forward to celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee as a school and hope this will be a memorable day for the children.

Our final Bushcraft meeting took place yesterday for parents and carers of children in year 4. We hope that you found this meeting useful and feel that you have all the information that you need. If you have any questions, concerns or queries, please contact your child's class teacher.

I very much hope that our year 1 children enjoyed their time at the Hornimans Museum today - I am sure they will have so much to tell us all next week in school.

We are very clear that the SATs are only one measure of how a child is achieving/a school is performing and it is important to remember that children achieve every day and that not every success can be measured by a test. We choose to measure successes in a variety of different ways and we recognise every child for their achievements in our school however these may manifest.

On behalf of the whole school, I would like to wish our year 2 and year 6 children the very best of luck - they have all worked extremely hard this year and we are very proud of each and every one of them.

Have a wonderful weekend.

My very best wishes,

Mrs Freeman

Headteacher and Designated Safeguarding Lead
