As teachers anxiously awaited the Year 6 #Satsresults last week, TES dipped its metaphorical elbow into Twitter to test whether they were hot and bothered or as cool as a pedagogical cucumber.
Even before the results were out, @PeterAllen1 was out of bed asking: "Is anyone staying up to find out their fate?"
@Johnybig32 highlighted a common point of view. "It's a shame #Satsresults won't reflect the nurture and growth so many Year 6 teachers have developed this year," he tweeted. "I know what I've achieved."
Meanwhile, @Tomee78 questioned the ethical status of Sats: "They are actually a detriment to a rounded education and a tool for governmental dictatorship over education," he argued.
Parents were also quick to raise concerns over the stresses and strains that their children had to face. @29yearoldmama said of her son: "He did it and exceeded our expectations. He made himself sick over these exams."
But whether the results were good or bad, @MontysLastRant offered a little light at the end of the tunnel by reminding people that Sats were not the only measure of excellence: "Children can make a valuable and positive contribution to the world irrespective of any gradings," he said.
