The Welsh Government has introduced reading and numeracy tests into Welsh Schools for all pupils from Years 4 to 9. At Sandfields these tests will take place as follows:
Y8 May 7th Reading at 9:00 am, numeracy test 1 at 10:55 am and May 9th numeracy test 2 at 1:30 pm.
Y7 May 8th Reading at 9:00 am, numeracy test 1 at 10:55 am and May 7th numeracy test 2 at 1:30 pm.
Y9 May 9th Reading at 9:00 am, numeracy test 1 at 10:55 am and May 8th numeracy test 2 at 1:30 pm.
Tests take up to 1 hour (and an additional 20 mins preparation time) for the reading test and 30 minutes (and an additional 10 or 15 minutes preparation time) for each numeracy test.
Pupils who miss a test due to absence will be required to sit the test immediately on their return but prior to 13th May. However, we would encourage parents and guardians to ensure that their child is in school for the scheduled time of each test.
