National Reading and Numeracy Tests

As part of the National Literacy and Numeracy Framework, all KS3 pupils (Y7, Y8 & Y9) in Wales will be expected to do one reading and two numeracy tests.

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 us if you have any queries about the arrangements for these tests.
