We're at an overseas school, and I'd really like to know if schools in the UK will make a child repeat a year (KS1) if they're behind. My experience of UK (independent) schools is more that children will be asked to leave if they're not keeping up. I would really value some up to date info on what both state and independent schools are doing...do kids have to repeat? Thanks!!
I work in a UK Prep school, this year two children are repeating yr 5, one who had been with us before and a new pupil, and we are considering keeping back another 2 pupils of different ages. It's unusual for us, but we do do it if it's best for the child emotionally or academically.
