Croeso i Nant Celyn Primary School
Welcome to Nant Celyn Primary School Online
Click here to read a welcome message from Mrs. Jones, our headteacher.
Our pupils will be undergoing Reading, Numeracy Procedural and Numeracy Reasoning tests on Wednesday 6th May, Thursday 7th May and Monday 11th May. Some tests will last for about an hour but are designed in a way that some pupils will be able to sit them in "chunks". This will be especially important for our younger pupils and those with additional learning needs. Importantly, the tests will be delivered in a classroom situation which your child will feel comfortable in. It is very important that all children are in school on these days.
If any child is absent he/she will have to do the test on their return but this will be very difficult for schools to administer. Therefore your support in this would be appreciated.
You can access sample material for all papers on the following links:
