SATs Wellbeing guide

SATs Wellbeing Guide For Parents A guide packed with tips to help you support your child before, during and after the SATs.


What is this resource and who is it for? This resource is a guide that provides both you and your child with tips as to how you can help them manage their stress and anxiety levels before, during and after the SATs. It has been created to help you ensure that your child’s mental wellbeing is not affected throughout the entire SATs period, as this is a time when many children come under pressure to achieve, either from themselves or inadvertently from their school or parents. It also includes a small guide that you can hand out to your child which gives them all the information they will need to know about the SATs in an easily digestible format.
