I have a son who is just going into year 6 and we are considering him doing the 11+
In his end of year 5 optional sats for maths he got a 4a,just missing out on a level5.
So in his official year6 sats he should comfortably acchieve a level 5,which everyone seems to think is fine for grammer,and they won't struggle.
The thing is in his year4 report the teacher said he was struggling,so I have spent the last year giving him extra help at home,which has obviously worked,but now I am worried that he has only acchieved this with extra help and he might struggle when I stip helping.
Any opinions will be welcomed
Don't worry about him not coping. My daughter is much stronger at English and languages and is OK at maths and I was worried about her going to the grammar she got into as it is a very high achieving school. She has done well and has not been struggling with the maths at all. In fact I have found that she has enjoyed the challenge of the maths even though it is not her favourite subject and she is keen to be on par with her peers (obviously there are always exceptional pupils who are outstanding). Good luck to you son - I am sure he will be fine.
