Welcome to Year 6

A massive well done to all of the children in Bonetta and Bridgetower for all of their hard work building up to SATs. The children impressed us with their approach to the tests and their attitude during the assessments.

Our focus now shifts to our end of year production and preparation for transition to Secondary School.
