As I sit nervously waiting for Year 6 SAT results in the morning, crossing my fingers that these wonderful children will get the results they deserve, hoping that the effort and determination they have shown to all their teachers is repaid, I find myself remembering these very wise words:
SATs don't measure sports, SATs don't measure art,
SATs don't measure music, or the kindness in your heart.
SATs don't see your beauty, SATs don't know your worth,
SATs don't see the reasons you were put upon this earth.
SATs don't see your magic, how you make others smile,
SATs don't time how quickly you can run a mile.
SATs don't hear your laughter, or see you've come this far,
SATs are just a tiny glimpse of who you really are.
So sitting at your table, with a pencil and your test,
Remember SATs aren't who you are, remember you're the best.
We're proud of you whatever the outcome!
