Key Stage 2 SATs results.  

The children have been given their SATs results for GPS, reading and maths today. 

The pass mark is 100.  If they have not achieved this pass mark of 100, it does not mean that they have failed, it means that they are working towards the expected.  Please reassure your child that if they have tried their best, then that is all we can ask and that they should be proud of their results.
