I am anxious - wondering if I have filled the forms okay and the address proof which my husband sent (as I was away from country) is all okay or would we get to know on 1st March that this was wrong...............

Am I the only one to worry?

Also wanted to know how are the kids preparing for SATS - my girl is just not working anymore, what should I make her do at home for SATS - her Creative writing needs to be enhanced as per her teacher.

Thanks!

Don’t worry about SATs that much, the school will do the work and set HW etc.

If her teacher says she needs to work on creative writing then they should be setting work to do that.

Most schools do more than enough work for SATs, parents don’t need to do any more. If you are lucky enough to be at a school with a more relaxed approach, be very grateful.

As for allocations day, I think we all have the jitters before hand.

Jitters - check
SATs - meh

Just had first term report for DD1 who is in Y7 of GS. Clearly SATs are not what they are bench-marking her against at the moment (even if that is the Government Progress 8 measure). It is all based on the base line tests they had at the beginning of term. So like I say - SATs, meh.

Sadly primary school doesn't see it that way so they are drilled week in, week out on a very limited curriculum rather than enjoying a broad range of creative and investigative subjects that genuinely prepare them for secondary school...probably a whole other thread.

For people that have been classed "Late" won't a snail mail has already been sent?
There is a thread on same in this Forum - "Applications classed as Late". So on 1st March if we don't make it to List it can only be because of marks Right?
