Dear Year 6,
Next week, you will take your SATs tests for Grammar, Spelling, Reading and Maths. We know how hard you have worked but there is something very important that you must know.
The SATs tests do not assess all of what makes each of you special and unique. The people who create and score these tests do not know you the way we do and certainly not in the way your families know you.
They do not know how some of you love to draw and are incredibly artistic. They have not seen your amazing talents for dancing, gymnastics and singing. They haven’t seen how many different musical instruments you can play. They do not know that you are brilliant at science and computer games or that you have a love of history and finding out about people of the past. They do not know how fast you can run or the fantastic talents you have in all of your different sports. They do not know how much you care about your community and how you stand up for what you believe in. They do not know that you are funny and unique. They do not know that you are kind, trustworthy and thoughtful and that every day you try to be your very best.
The scores you get on these tests will tell you something but they will not tell you everything. You will have been successful because you have worked hard to prepare and you have tried your best. We are so proud of every one of you already. There is no “test” to see how amazing you are – we already know it.
This weekend, make sure you rest, relax, be positive and have some fun. We know you are going to shine!
Mrs Heap, Mrs Hoyle, Mr Sharp, Mrs Elam, Miss Barraclough,
