SATs update

Well here I am commenting on my own blog - for a reason.  Since I wrote the previous post,  the NAHT (headteachers' union) has decided not to ballot for a boycott of SATs in 2011, but will instead take part in the Government's planned review of accountability and assessment in primary schools. Michael Gove has stated that "It is important that we make KS2 tests command the maximum level of confidence amongst both the public and the teaching profession".  So SATs as normal next May.  Hollymount will continue to deliver an enriched curriculum to Year 6 without overemphasis on coaching and mock testing, whilst assessing and tracking the children's progress to ensure the majority meet end of KS2 national expectations or better.
