Today’s poll: Should those who fail to reach Level 4 in Year 6 Sats re-sit in Year 7?

    SchoolsImprove Ridiculous, I can imagine swathes of pupils with varying degrees of SEN & EAL resitting the test with no hope of success.

    SchoolsImprove no,because level 4 at ks2 is totally different that level 4 at ks3. There has never been correlation between and key stages.
