SATs – don’t get in a tizz

Some of the parents who come into our centre are very worried about SATs and how important they are. Well, they are important to the school especially for its OFSTED rating and ultimately funding. They can be good for a child’s self esteem, but they are not the most important thing about a child’s education.

 

My advice is: do your best, support your child but ease back on the pressure. It’s not the end of the world. In my experience most secondary schools don’t put too much weight on the results. So enjoy Year 6, it’s a great time!
