The English tests English reading test Writing within year 6 is now based on a teacher assessment. Grammar Test: Each child will receive a separate result for writing reading and grammar. The reading and grammar result are also combined to give an overall English level. The average result for most children within year 6 is a level 4.
The mathematics tests The mathematics tests comprise: Papers 1 and 2- this year these are both non calculator tests. We no longer sit a calculator paper. mental mathematics test. Children’s marks from all three tests will be aggregated to calculate their overall mathematics level.
The level 6 tests Schools can also administer level 6 tests in English reading, grammar and mathematics to high attaining children. These tests are optional. Headteachers should take into account children’s expected attainment prior to entering them for these tests as they should already be demonstrating attainment above level 5. Children will be required to achieve both a level 5 in the end of Key Stage 2 test and pass the level 6 test in the corresponding subject, in order to be awarded an overall level 6 test result in that subject.
Test results will be available to the school on 8 th July 2014
