Standardised Tests/ Report Cards

Dear Parents/ Guardians of children from 1st-6th class,

As you know the children from 1st- 6th class completed their standardised tests in Mathematics and English in May. Over the coming days you will receive their report card in the post which will include their STEN scores from these tests.

The children have done tremendously well this year in coping with all the changes which Covid 19 has brought to our lives. I wanted to write to you all to reassure you that the standardised tests are a snapshot of one particular area of learning. They were not designed with a pandemic in mind and school closures. Therefore, they are not a true reflection of all the strides your child has made during the year. 

I encourage you to please read the attached information outlining what standardised tests are and how to interpret results. However, more importantly please read all the wonderful comments that your daughter’s teacher wrote about her in the school report.

Well done to everyone for working so hard this year. Thank you for your continued support and patience as we come nearer to the end of the school year.

Please God next year will bring with it a more settled, and healthier academic year for us all.

Kind regards,

Ms. Coen
