Welcome to Year Six – a fantastic year in which your child embarks on their final year of primary education. We have high expectations for all our learners: our values and vision are rooted in ensuring all children achieve, enjoy and thrive. We pride ourselves on nurturing our learners and our ethos both encourages and promotes an environment where children can be themselves and ensures all have maximum opportunity to achieve their full potential. Through fun and exciting lessons, theme days and inspirational trips, we develop children’s curiosity, imagination and love of learning, providing the children with lasting memories which they will treasure.
Towards the end of Key Stage 2, Year 6 children take the KS2 SATs (Statutory Assessment Tests). Children are assessed for a week during the middle of May. This can be a time when children may feel anxious but rest assured that children will be relaxed, prepared and ready to tackle the tests! With breakfast available, calm music and extended breaks, we are often asked at the end of the week if SATs week can be extended!
As we approach the summer term, our focus shifts to the transition to secondary school. We aim to equip learners with the skills, confidence and positive attitudes that will support them to make a smooth transition to their chosen secondary school, ensuring they continue their learning journey with all the academic, social and life skills needed to build upon.
