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.  

In the downloads section you will see the letter that was sent out to parents and carers with some additional information and guidance.
