Year 6 pupil on holiday this week!

Discussion in 'Assessment' started by Julia s, May 12, 2013.

  1. One of my Year 6 children has been taken on holiday! The mother was very apologetic - hadn't put the date in her diary (despite a specific request to do so at the beginning of the year and at least 2 reminders since that) The rules say that holidays are not a reasonable excuse to let them take the tests ' up to 5 working days after the SATs date' - has anyone had a similar situation and got round it or shall I just give up.
