no, levels are all a bit daft IMHO, just something else for parents to worry about
dd3's school only give levels in year 2 when they do sats.
dd1&2 are in middle school and we get lots of levels and it's all a bit baffling. Last year we had negative progress in english, despite being given an outstanding and excellent grades for effort and homework
oh thank you all. I feel a bit relieved! I know DD is a bright cookie but she is young and I am not familiar with the UK education system so I am really finding it hard to understand the reports and position DD in terms of how she is doing, where she should be etc... And to be honest the reports are not very helpful. There is no explanation of the letters (2C etc) and the comments are like she does this well but need to improve that....so you really can't tell.
Thank you so much for the reassurance and answering my stupid questions. I don't want to push DD but I just want to make sure she is challenged to her potential (whatever it is) so that she has the best chance of doing what she wants when she is older.
