I went to talk to Head of KS2 this morning because my son is also supposed to be sitting the level 6 paper, against my better judgement. The school is not preparing him for the exam which to me is fair enough as it is not Year 6 material. Anyway, I was told that whether or not should he reach the illustrious heights of level 6, the information will not be passed to his secondary (grammar) school. It is purely for the primary school's benefit, it seems. In fact the teacher being made to put him through it is against it too, so am not quite sure why all this is happening. I certainly won't view it as any kind of 'feather in his cap' and, as I told the teacher, I would rather he had a cookery afternoon or went out to play than sat practising any more b ***dy papers.
