Willows High School

Key Stage 3 (Y7, Y8 & Y9) National Reading and Numeracy Tests

As part of the National Literacy and Numeracy Framework, all Key Stage 3 pupils in Wales will be expected to do one reading and two numeracy tests. The tests have to be administered in school between Monday 29th April 2019 and Tuesday 14th May 2019. Please inform the school if you know in advance, or on the day, that your child will be absent between these dates.

A leaflet explaining the tests in further detail is available on the Learning Wales website, and previous years' tests are available to download below. The results of the tests will be communicated to you at a later date. If your child does not sit a test, they will score zero.

Please ensure that your child has the correct equipment in school to complete the tests (pens, pencils, highlighter, rubber, sharpener, protractor, calculator and ruler).

Please contact the school if you have any concerns or queries about these arrangements.
