Next week our Year 6 children will be taking their Sats tests in reading, writing and maths. They have been working very hard and I am confident that they will do very well. These tests are taken by every child in England at the end of Year 6. Every year our children achieve highly and this year’s children are on course to do just as well as our previous years. Good luck Year 6!!
