A fantastic well done to all of the children who have worked incredibly hard persevering with some issues that have arisen in the national online numeracy tests which are new to schools this year. Your child may have come home saying that questions were too difficult, had bits missing and lots of other things. Please be assured that these issues have arisen in school across the country and they are not a reflection of your child’s learning. As a school we will be giving feedback to Welsh Government about the inappropriateness of some questions, the glitches with how children could respond and other issues experienced. We are extremely proud of the children and of the staff who have worked through these issues, maintaining a lovely, purposeful atmosphere in their classes. Thank you to you as parents for not putting undue pressure on your children and for supporting them every day of the year.
