A letter from school is not what you would expect to brighten your day, but this one will. A head teacher at the Barrowford Primary School in Lancashire, UK wrote an encouraging letter to her students right after their KS2 SAT test. The letter has now gone viral on the internet.

In a world, where academic scores are often the most important parameter of a student’s achievements, this teacher urges her pupils to take pride in who they are irrespective of their pending test results. “Tests always do not assess all of what it is that make each of you special and unique” she writes.
