Year 6 - SATs Week 2016 – Monday 9th May – Thursday 12th May 2015

Dear Parent/Carer,


All Year 6 children must be in school every day to take their exams.


If your child misses any session they will not get a mark for that subject.  No tests can be re‑taken at an earlier or later date.


Please change any appointment for that week.


For your child to achieve their best:

  • Please make sure they are getting 10 hours sleep per night
  • Ensure they have a breakfast that will keep them focused and full up (Eldon is providing a free breakfast for this week 8 am onwards. Please ensure you have returned your form.)
  • They must arrive at school on time – 8.50 a.m.
  • Ensure they are happy and feeling confident
