Please can you make sure that your child attends school promptly during that week and that out of school appointments are kept to a minimum. No absences will be authorised as in previous years. You may find the following advice helpful:-


Please make sure that your child has a good rest on the day before their tests and that they go to bed early and get plenty of sleep.


The children may bring in snacks and water during the tests to provide “brain fuel.”


The tests must be completed on the timetabled day for Y6 children.


Children in Year 2 are also being assessed during May and we would request that any absence from school is kept to a minimum.
