Tutoring question
3

Hello, my daughter was expected to sit her year 6 sats this year and for that she was seeing a tutor on a weekly basis. As the sats are not taking place, shall we cancel the tutor lessons? I am not sure of what to do. Tutor has offered to do online lesson at the same rate tough.
Thank you

I don't personally see the point in tutoring for SATS unless it's for a child who is struggling to meet the expected standard and would be entering secondary unable to access the curriculum easily without it.

If you'd like to do some preparation work for secondary then it could be interesting to do, but be aware that most primary teachers don't know the secondary curriculum content and not all secondaries do the same topics.
If you're going to continue tutoring then I'd probably only do it to refresh any areas of weakness with y6 materials.

Not a teacher.
I think tutoring 'for SATs' is pointless, but tutoring to be 'secondary ready' is worthwhile.
So on that basis I'd continue tutoring if they are struggling, but not if you were tutoring to get 115+.
