Scottish National Standardised Assessments S3 Pupils

This letter for S3 Parents about SNSA and this information leaflet  was emailed to S3 parents.  If you did not receive them please update your email address with the school office.

All pupils in third year in Scottish schools will undertake the Scottish National Standardised Assessment (SNSA).  The main purpose of the assessment is to provide information for teachers on how well children are doing in literacy and numeracy and to help guide learning and teaching.  The assessments are also designed to produce national-level information about children and young people’s progress for teachers’ use in school and the Scottish Government at national level. National level information covers the whole of Scotland and not individual schools.  Your child will complete the assessment in April.

The Scottish Government has created a dedicated website where you will find more information.
