SAT's results do not benefit the child only the school :S

 

Indeed! please dont add to the pressure already placed on your child by their school.

SATS determine the standard of class for core subjects that you go into for secondary school. Do rubbish in sats and your put in the low level groups with allot of people who disrupt class and make it harder to learn and progress.

 

Actually i was about to add that she will only be made to repeat them once she starts in september. Just out of interest why do you feel the less able children disrupt classes? :loopy:

When she goes to secondary school she will be reassessed - most secondaries do not trust SATs results as so many children are coached to pass them. You should find that the secondary will take primary school teacher assessments as a starting block to set her (rather than SAT's) and then she will be moved over time as to how well she is doing when she is there (so in theory can move down a set if the new school finds that her levels are inflated).

But don't you think tutoring will help her progress? and be beneficial?

I guess it depends really on whether you feel she is struggling. If she isn't she will ge getting so much SATs 'practise' every week - year 6 is a really awful year for kids as it is as it really is not like a proper year for them as everything is geared up to maximising SAT's results to make the school look good. Do you think that it will add to the immense pressure that school is putting on her? What does she think about the suggestion?

 

BTW clever kids can still be disruptive, so setting does not always help things in that way (my lad has found this out at his secondary:( )
