I only ask because mine has been forward for them, and I wonder how common it is... He didn't pass the 11plus either but is expected to get a high level 5 in the sats he has taken, hence being put forward for level 6.

AFAIK primary schools are not allowed to test children beyond Level 5 in the KS2 SATs.

I queried this after my child acheived high level 5s in year 5 and then 'only' level 5 in Y6 and was told that they were not allowed to sit higher papers.
