In Year 6 at the end of Key Stage 2 (KS2) your child will take a series of tests.
Schools are required to administer the following levels 3-5 tests:
English-reading, English-Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling (Spag) and Mathematics.
Schools may also choose to administer level 6 versions of these tests. These tests are taken on a specific week, usually mid May.
The mathematics part of the test consists of two non-calculator papers, Paper 1 and Paper 2, each lasting 45 minutes and
mental mathematics test, lasting 20 minutes
Children’s marks from all three tests are aggregated to calculate their overall mathematics level.
Your childs school may choose to administer level 6 versions of these tests which are taken after the levels 3-5 tests.
