In keeping with DES regulations, standardised literacy and numeracy testing will take place in May 2016. It is essential for assessment purposes that ALL children be present for these tests. These specific standardised tests include 1st class to 6th class.
Last year, a number of children were absent due to holidays.Therefore, we would like to give substantial notice to people so that if at all possible they can avoid booking holidays during this testing period.
Standardised testing will take place on May 17th and May 19th 2016.
Please put these important dates into your diary/calendar.
Obviously, if children are sick this is an exception to the rule.
Many thanks for your understanding and co-operation with the above matter.
