May’s always a busy time in school with statutory assessments beginning. Today, we’ve also had activities linked to the coronation.
Next week, Year 6 pupils have their end-of-key stage assessments – their SATs. Check out these seven top tips to support your child doing the SATs. (They’re useful for lots of children, lots of the time, too!)
Because of the coronation, all the Year 6 tests are one day later than normal. This means that our original training day, originally scheduled for Friday 12 May, is now Monday 15 May. We’re closed on this day.
Talking of dates…
Don’t forget that next year, our school week is changing.
Every day, we’ll keep to the same times, starting at 8.50am and finishing at 3.15pm.
This follows a consultation with parents/carers earlier in the year.
‘Neurodiversity’ describes the different ways that people’s brains develop. Everyone’s brain is unique but the majority of us have similar brains to others. Our brains affect how we experience the world around us and how we react to it. Neurodiversity includes neurotypical and neurodivergent people. Neurodivergence describes people whose brains have developed differently, including autistic people and those with ADHD, dyslexia, dyscalculia, developmental language disorder and Tourette syndrome. The list of neurodivergent brain types is ever changing as we learn more.
NHS MindMate has recently launched a great website with loads of really helpful information, tips and advice – check it out.
Whatever you get up to this weekend, enjoy a happy and healthy – and longer – weekend!
