Dear Year 6 pupils,

Well done to everyone as you have reached the end of the SAT tests today!  I know that you have been well prepared for the tests by your class teachers, Mr Davis and Miss Woodham.  You have learnt a lot over the last four years and even had to manage the curriculum changing part way through the journey. The adults in school have tried hard to help you prepare, and have come to breakfast with you on each day of the tests to help you feel supported.

There is however something very important that you need to remember. The tests do not test everything that makes you special.  They do not cover all the aspects of you that have been developing in your time at the junior school.  The tests will show what you have been able to do on a particular day at a particular time in a particular subject.  The tests only examine reading, grammar, punctuation and spelling and mathematics.

SAT tests don’t take into account that you are a caring and supportive friend. They don’t show the gold cards, commendations, stickers and awards you have achieved. They don’t identify the sports activities or choir activities you may have taken part in and represented the school.  They don’t acknowledge that you may be a fantastic artist or musician or speak two languages.  They do not show you are a dancer, comedian, gardener, chef or that you are caring enough to look after someone when they are sad. They won’t show that you are honest and can be trusted or that you always try your best even when the work is tough.  They don’t show that you have developed wonderful resilience.

The results from the tests will give some information to your secondary school.  But as you know, the results will not give them all the information about you.  You are unique.  You are special.  We know it; your families know it and you need to remember it.  Each of you has something wonderful to offer the world and that can’t just be measured by doing some tests at ten or eleven years old.

Remember that you have been part of Chester Park Junior School.  This year you have had a visit from OfSTED, many of you performed on clarinets in front of hundreds of people or have represented the school in an array of sporting events.   I have seen you all grow into young people I am very proud to know.  I know that you are ready for the final term in the junior school and will tackle the challenge of secondary school using the skills you have learnt here.

Well done for getting through the tests, feel proud of your achievement, and remember, there is a lot more to you as a person than the ‘snapshots’ taken over these four busy days. Everyone at school is very proud of all your achievements.  I wish you all every success for the future.
