As part of the National Literacy and Numeracy Framework, all KS3 pupils in Wales will be expected to do one reading and one reasoning paper based test. The tests will be administered in school between Tuesday 30th April and Tuesday 7th May 2018. Please inform the school if you know in advance, or on the day, that your child will be absent between these dates. There will be a further online procedural assessment during the Summer term.
A leaflet explaining the tests in further detail is available on the ‘Learning Wales’ website, and previous years’ tests are available to download below. The results of the tests will be communicated to you at a later date. If your child does not sit a test, they will score zero.
Please ensure that your child has the correct equipment in school to complete the tests (pens, pencils, highlighter, rubber, sharpener, protractor, calculator and ruler).
Please contact the school if you have any concerns or queries about these arrangements.
