Welcome to Year 6
Throughout Year 6, the children will be learning about diversity and respect through our key theme: Building a better society.
Key concepts such as Social Responsibility, Justice, Gender Equality, Democracy, Environmental Stewardship, Wealth Distribution and Cultural Experiences are built into everything we learn. These are linked to our KS2 values: Belonging, Knowledge, Trust and Equality.
In Year 6, our children hone their critical thinking skills through foundation subject including the study of thought-provoking novels.

All Year 6 children working within National Curriculum requirements are legally obliged to participate in end of Key Stage 2 Statutory Assessment Tests (SATs) which identify the attainment of children in Reading, Writing and Mathematics for national comparison. During the coming months, further information and guidance regarding SATs will be issued to you. SATs are not something which either you or your child should be worried about – that is our job! Instead, they should be approached as an opportunity to showcase everything they have learned throughout their time in Key Stage 2.
