Yr6 SATS cancelled
Today the Government has at last announced the cancellation of SATS for Year 6. Although for us preparation for SATS has not been our focus for Year 6 since September nevertheless they have been an ever present concern for us - a concern that we have endeavoured to keep from the children.
With them now cancelled we will have some additional space to continue or job of addressing the issue of educational recovery.
Children will going to need long-term support for their learning and a curriculum that would have to, at a later point in 2021 be steered towards a test was never going to be the best the way to achieve this. Our expectations and desire to see Year 6 achieving as close to age-related expectation as is possible remains our aim so that the children can begin their secondary education as well prepared as is possible.
