Like the others have said - it all depends on the school. At my school we level the children in reading, writing and maths every half term, but this will be mostly teacher assessment not formal testing. We do the optional SATS once a year. The only levels that get reported to parents are the end of Y6 SATS.
Thank you everyone. I'm in Germany and the kids are tested and graded every six weeks. Mine find this quite stressful. We are hoping to relocate back during the next year and I was just wondering what it was like back home.
