We understand that parents/carers are keen to know their
children’s current level of attainment, and if they
are working within, below or above National Expectations for
their age, and therefore where development is needed.
We offer comprehensive assessments in English and Mathematics,
for pupils in Years 2 to 11. From the Department of Education
and Skills booklet:
“How is your child doing at school?”
“What National Curriculum level should most children
Key Stage 1 (Age 7)
At least 2b—level 2 is divided into three sub-levels
(2a, 2b and 2c)
Children who achieve no higher than 2c may not be progressing
well enough to reach level 4 when they are 11.
Key Stage 2 (Age 11)
At least level 4.
