All kids can learn and we are here to help them on their journey to success!

There are many ways of being smart that don't come from a test. Please enjoy the Barrowford Primary School letter about testing below.

Barrowford Primary School with blue heart above words

"We are concerned that tests do not always assess all of what it is that make each student special and unique. The people who create tests and score them do not know each of you - the way your teachers do, the way we hope to, and certainly not the way your families do.

They do not know that many of you speak two languages. They do not know that you can play a musical instrument or that you can dance or paint a picture. They do not know that your friends count on you to be there for them or that your laughter can brighten the dreariest day.

They do not know that you write poetry or songs, play or participate in sports, wonder about the future, or that sometimes you take care of your little brother or sister after school.

They do not know that you have traveled to a really neat place or that you know how to tell a great story or that you really love spending time with special family members and friends.

They do not know that you can be trustworthy, kind or thoughtful, and that you try, every day, to be your very best… the scores you get will tell you something, but they will not tell you everything.

So enjoy your test results and be very proud, but remember there are many ways of being smart."
