A school in Greater Manchester is lavishing praise on students BEFORE they take their exams. Buckton Vale Primary in Stalybridge sent letters home to year 6 pupils to tell them just how 'unique' they are before they take their SATs.

The letter signed by the deputy head has had thousands of likes on the school's Facebook page. The letter reads: " That SATs test does not access all what makes you special and unique." "They do not know that you are kind, trustworthy and thoughtful and that everyday you try your best."
