Reflective speaker/listener

Likely to be assessed as level 6 in Key Stage 3 or GCSE grade D/C in Key Stage 4

Pupils working at this level in speaking and listening are able to use talk in increasingly demanding contexts to explore complex ideas and feelings. The organisation and adaptation of their language is well controlled, and they can analyse the impact of spoken language variation in different contexts. They make perceptive contributions to discussion, drawing ideas together and extending meanings effectively. In drama they adapt roles convincingly, using flexible and empathetic speech, gestures and movements.

Pupils assessed as low level 6 are likely to need targets to take them to level 6 in some AF areas.

Pupils assessed as secure or high level 6 are likely to need targets to take them to level 7 in some AF areas.
