Hello, I'm looking for help/advice and to also rant a little. I'm a Yr 6 teacher at a very small school over the easter holidays a pupil of mine was seriously injured and is in a neck brace. They are on liquid diet and are due to have more operations in the coming weeks. Obviously this means that they are unable to sit their SATs tests in 4 weeks. I've been speaking to and emailing the ncatools people, the LEA and the STA and they have all said the same thing. "he will have to be marked as absent for the test" Apparently there is no special dispensation for children who cannot physically sit the tests. I can obviously submit my teacher assessment but it still goes down as an "N" in the school results. Where we are such a small school (19 in year 6) every pupil counts for just over 5% so now I'm looking at 5% less for my eoy data, which will obviously have a negative effect on the schools league table place. Is there anyway around this? hellllpppppppp!!!!!!!!
