Proposed Uniform Change A letter has been sent out this week regarding the proposal of changing some aspects of our school uniform. Please send your reply slip with your comments to the main office by Friday 25th May. Congratulations to Year Six! You Did Us Proud! I would like to say a HUGE well done to our amazing Y6 pupils who have been sitting their end of Key Stage 2 SAT tests this week. The tests are a really intense experience for the children to go through and here at Bishop Martin we try to shield them from those pressures as much as possible, while still preparing them as well as they possibly can be! These tests do not define us as a school (we are so much more than that here!); and they don't define your children (they are so much more than just a test score!). I have watched them tackle every single test this week with real calmness and maturity and WHATEVER their results are we know that the whole school and you as their parents will be proud of them! Well done again Year 6! Mr McDonald
