Can anyone tell me what level an average child would get in English at the end of Year 8? I understand the levels at primary school but am confused by those in secondary school. In primary school it is expected that a child will make two sub-levels of progress per year but this doesn't seem to follow at least with my son's progress in English since he entered secondary school. He got a 4a in English at primary school, but dropped to a 4c in the autumn term of year 7 and then was given a 5a at the end of year 7 by a supply teacher, who didn't understand the leveling system!. He then dropped to a 4a at the start of year 8 and now at the end of year 8 is a 5b, meaning he has only made 2 sub-levels progress in 2 years, ie since year 6. Is this adequate progress?
