At last parent meeting we were given our dd's predicted grades (she is currently in Yr 4). They seem pretty good. However, I am saying this but what does predicted mean and actually tutor feels on reading prediction is not high enough? So how do you know if what the computer has produced means she needs extra help or not? ...
The predicted grades for key stage 2 sats are obtained by taking the key stage 1 results and projecting forward - they may from year to year adjust these depending on a dc's progress, that may depend on the school.
So a child with all 3's at the end of key stage 1 would be predicted level 5's at the end key stage 2. To have passed the 11 plus a child would generally be at level 5 or higher at the end of primary. To be able to take and pass the 11 plus, generally in a 25% of cohort pass rate area, the dc would need to be a level 4a or higher in subjects at the end of year 5 (IMO).
What level is youd dc now? and what are the predicted grades?
