Statutory Tests

A Caring Christian Family Where We Grow Together
Let Your Light Shine ~ Matthew 5:16

From time to time, your child will be required to completed some statutory tests set by the government.    As a school we will always keep the children's wellbeing at the heart of everything we do.    We will also approach any of these test with a child centred approach.    The tests do not and will never lead the learning in our school.  Instead we provide the children with a broad and balanced curriculum which will provide them with the skills and knowledge to succeed.

As school life continues to be disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Department for Education confirmed that testing will not happen in 2021.

Gavin Williamson, the Secretary of State for Education, said that the government recognised the primary tests “will be an additional burden on schools and it’s important we are very much focused on welcoming children back to the classroom”.
