This will be ignored by Gove, won't it?

Hamish, I know it's bloody enraging. Same situation here. Very little fluidity between sets. I've almost given up on her learning maths at school and have hired a tutor, as well as working with her myself.

The school cannot teach children according to their ability. They can only teach to their attainment. Which is a whole different thing.

Our school believes strongly in teaching to the children's ability. That's what they've said.

Sorry to hear Whistle. I think/hope it must come right by the end. We're Ofsted Outstanding and incredibly highly thought of.

Out primary set at year 2 as well and it is a disadvantage for the lower groups who do not cover the same level a week and then kick in later.
