Year 6 Breakfast at School (w/c 13th May 2024)

Dear Year 6,


We are writing to invite you to a sharing breakfast on each morning of the SATS tests (Monday 13 May to Thursday 16 May). Please arrive at the main school entrance at 8.15am each morning.  You will be required to sign in so that we know who is present and breakfast will be held in the staff room. This will provide you with an opportunity to have a healthy snack before a busy morning and to be around friends and staff for a little reassurance if you need it.  Attendance is by no means compulsory, and if you have already had breakfast but would still like to meet with friends and staff before the start of the school day, you are also welcome.


There will be a variety of breakfasts available, from cereal to pains au chocolate, juice and fruit.  If you would like to attend please ask a parent/ guardian to complete the electronic consent form by Tuesday 7th May:


We are so incredibly proud of all your hard work this year (and the many years that came before).  As Year 6 staff, we recognise that SATs week will be a busy one and we have no doubt that many of you will be nervous or even possibly excited! You are all super-stars and we know that you will perform brilliantly in the week to come.
