Any other Yr 6 teachers worrying about SATs results tomorrow?

I keep waking up feeling sick about the imminent results. Anyone else?

Yep, same here. Have a really lovely class this year who all worked so hard for SATS. Have a few really bright sparks. It's the borderline ones I'm worried about though.

On the negative side, I fear (in a very cynical way) that the thresholds will be high or higher so that the 'new look' SATS from next year will miraculously show how much better this Gov are doing. Wouldn't put it past them.

On the positive side, both I, the staff supporting Y6 and the children themselves could not have worked any harder or been more focused and positive. Just hope it pays off...

Glad I'm not alone! It's my first year in 5/6 (although very experienced old hand teacher!) so I'm really feeling the pressure that I'm totally responsible for these results. I really hope that the children have done well as they worked so hard and deserve to get good results.

Know what you mean. I'm the only Y6 teacher (one form entry school) so it really is down to me in a way!! Didn't get nervous last year, but feeling it this year, prob because I genuinely like this class!

Also, we have a new head who is a bit twitchy about data, understandably so. I just want the children to feel elated, not disappointed. They really shouldn't be made to feel like they have failed even before they hit secondary!

I wonder what time the results will come through? My HT says it depends on how many people are trying to log in on the system at once. I'm out on a trip with my Yr5's in the morning (mixed class teacher!) so hope by the time I'm back at lunchtime the results will be through. I just want to know now.

They are already out - always get loaded up just after midnight! Sad HT here stayed up to get results. Cake for all tomorrow smile Good luck

My head said she'd let me know. Haven't heard, yet. Not sure whether that's because she's sitting somewhere in a corner, rocking backwards and forwards, mumbling "Ofsted are coming".
Never had year 6 in a one-form-entry school before. So far, it's always been a team effort...within big teams.
Worried, because we need them to be good and the first maths paper was just horrendous. sad My class have worked so hard. They really have.

How did you all get on? Has everyone survived?!

Results were good for us. A couple of surprises but in general they were what we had thought they could achieve.

I hope everyone else has had positive results.

I had a couple of disappointing but not unexpected L3's but a bonus L6. Annoyingly there were two children 1 mark off L5 in maths.
I told the children their results today (individually before they went home on reports to parents) and told all of them I was so proud of them. They were all happy and got on with the rest of their day (which is what I wanted).

Had a lot expected to get level 5 maths, who missed by 2-4 marks sad, but more level 5 reading than we expected smile. Dread to think what chaos there will be next year when we get our first scaled scores back...

petalpower Tue 07-Jul-15 22:17:43

Yes, our reading was better than we expected. I thought lots of mine didn't get chance to finish the paper so was pleased we didn't have any L3's. They seemed to run out of time on the last section of the text.

Partystress - I suspect we'll all be sat looking at our results next year thinking 'what's that mean then?' And not really knowing if they are good, bad or disastrous! smile

I am over the moon with mine. Lots of L5's.
However, next years cohort and the new exams will be entirely a different thing.
