A parents guide to primary testing A parents guide to primary testing

Year 5

In year 5, there are currently no high-pressure tests.  However, this is one of only two years in primary school where your child will not have to sit one of the government’s formal assessments.

It’s wrong that children should have to sit formal tests in five out of seven years of primary school. There are more supportive ways to assess children and schools should be measured on the overall quality of education that they provide.
