A Prayer for SATs Season
Writer: Isabel Willmott
PANIC STATIONS! The SATs are here!
As you will no doubt be aware, during May, KS1 and KS2 SATs take place. For many children, these Statutory Assessment Tests may be the first time they have sat an exam in this way, which can bring up a variety of feelings and emotions. Particularly across KS2 where greater emphasis is placed on preparing for SATs throughout the school year, some pupils can tend towards anxiety and worry.
We have created a prayer resource for home and school use, which helps explore and validate children’s emotional responses, whilst encouraging them to prepare for and pray about their SATs with a distinct focus on Jesus who is with us and gives us peace.
This prayer is part of our Collective Worship subscription, but we have made it freely available for all schools so you can use it with your children.
Do let us know how you get on with this resource – we love to hear from you! We’re always looking to expand our offering of ‘one-off’ resources that fall outside of the usual calendar of Gospel-inspired assemblies and daily prayers, so do let us know of anything you’d particularly like to see us produce.
