Anyone on here with a P1 - P3 child? At what age/class did they attain level A in reading and writing? My child aged 6 has now passed this in P2. How does this compare? I know she is definitely not ahead, I just want to check to see if she is behind!

Dh (teacher) reliably informs me that this is bang on target. Level B by the end of Primary 4, Level C before starting P7, and Level D/E by the time you leave primary.

my dd is 7, just finished P3 today, I have no idea really!

She has passed level B maths/reading/writing and is on level C - at no point have I been told where she "should" be, I think with the introduction of the curriculum for excellence it will all be changing again? I don't think she works particularly hard, there is no pressure on the children, and only certain competitive parents are interested in what level your child is on.

There are guidelines somewhere.. will look for links....

I agree with TTT, attaining Level A is exactly spot on although some children would achieve it in P3 and this is the default level. (ie if you did not have A by end of P3 in maths, writing and reading there is perhaps a cause for concern.)
So well done to your DD!
