"To show parents how their child’s attainment compares with other pupils in their cohort, we propose to report each pupil’s ranking in the national cohort by decile (i.e. 10% of the cohort). This will show each pupil’s performance relative to their peers nationally. "

I would have liked this. Good to see where you are.

I don't think I'd want that till about Y9, when it is of value in terms of taking options. Prior to that, madness lies. It would for me anyway.

Yes, I'm fine with that.

Sorry - explanation - my DD2 (only child younger than 11) has had extensive evaluation due to SEN. We therefore have quite detailed information about her various different types of IQ etc. It would be very useful indeed to see if her attainment is what it should be given her ability - and if it isn't then we will be able to demand more support for her SEN issues (though I bet it won't be forthcoming).

No. I think it is likely to limit achievement. Is it to be based on iq or achievement? What about skills which cannot be measured?

No, I wouldn't find it helpful. To be honest, I know whereabouts they all are anyway in relation to their age cohort.

no problem with it

Would this be based on SATs results?

Yes, I would like a decile rating.
