    Does anybody know where on the dfe website (or any other site) can you find what levels they expect the students to be at for a particular subject?
    thanks

    Quoting:
    "The National Curriculum sets standards of achievement in each subject
    for pupils aged 5 to 14. For most subjects, these standards range from
    Levels 1 to 8. Pupils progress up the levels as they get older and
    learn more:


    • most 7 year olds are expected to achieve Level 2
    • most 11 year olds are expected to achieve Level 4
    • most 14 year olds are expected to achieve Levels 5 or 6"
    And, I think, that's it! I don't know of any differentiation for particular subjects.

    Hm. can't find it for some reason - it was on a ".gov" site. but here's NFER with the same info.
    "Children move up through the levels at a rate of approximately one level for each two years of school. Children at the end of year 2 are expected to achieve at least Level 2, and children at the end of primary school (year 6) are expected to achieve at least Level 4. At year 9, the expected level is Level 5 or 6."

    Same thing on page 7 of the booklet on National Curriculum English - Range of levels withing the great majority of pupils are expected to work: Key Stage 1 - levels 1 - 3; KS2 - levels 2 - 5; KS3 - levels3 - 7.
    And expected attainment for the majority of pupils: age 7 - level 2; age 11 - level 4 and at age 14 - level 5/6.
    (I'm sure the NC documents for all subjects would say the same.)
