Sorry, but i get so fed up with the push on SATS. The school I work at spends most of Y6 preparing for them rather than teaching!
Were they not brought in to check that the school was teaching the National Curriculum properly? The results should reflect that, not individuals ability. Maybe the childs name should not be on the paper and the statistics looked at only.
Dont make the teachers life easier by preparing your child, thats their responsibility. Focus on the Eleven Plus if thats what your child wants. My son didn't perform brilliantly in his SATs but passed his 11+ with ease and can hold his own comfortably with his peer group. The constant testing of children is unnecessary.
What is the old adage? "It doesn't matter how often you weigh a pig, it doesn't get any fatter!"
Sorry, rant over
