This can be a challenging time for our members because not only do SATs need administering but also parents sometimes raise objections about the tests, (in rare cases) seek to withdraw their children from school on scheduled test days or request the school excuses their children from the tests.

The purpose of this paper is to support members through this time of year and set out some suggested steps that school leaders can take to maintain the support of parents throughout the scheduled SATs period.
