SATs Breakfast Club

During SATs week, all Year 6 children are encouraged to attend a special free Breakfast Club, from 8.30am in the dining hall. This gives the children the chance to spend some time with their friends each morning before they begin their tests for that day. The Year 6 teachers supervise the SATs Breakfast Club, and make sure that everyone is feeling happy and relaxed before the school day begins.

Extra support

We want to make sure that every child is well prepared and can achieve their best in these tests. We provide extra support where it is needed, through after school booster classes and lunchtime drop in sessions. Children are given time to review their learning at the end of lessons and encouraged to approach their teachers at any time to talk about any difficulties they are having.

More information

More information about the tests and sample papers are available on the Department for Education website.
