How you can help
If you have any knowledge, skill, or artefacts related to what we are learning in school, then please do get in touch with your child’s teacher. We love having our Parents and Carers come in and help us all to learn!

Statutory Assessments
In the Summer term, your child will take statutory SATs in Reading, Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling, and Maths. They will also be assessed by their teacher (known as the teacher assessment) on speaking and listening, writing and science. We do not teach to the test in Year 2 and we try to ensure that the children do not experience pressure or stress related to the tests. In fact, we try to ensure that as many children as possible are not even aware that they are doing them!
