Kent Test may be delayed

Kent County Council is considering delaying this year’s Kent Test by about a month.

For those whose children will participate in the Kent Test, the current unknowns about a return to school in September are adding to the pressures caused by the pandemic, according to The Isle of Thanet News.

There is also a call for an increase in the number of schools parents can name on the Secondary Common Application Form (SCAF) from four to six for one year only.

Kent County Council staff have been exploring ways of delivering an 11-plus assessment process for the pupils due to start secondary school in 2021.

All 431 primary and junior schools in Kent were contacted and of the 325 which responded, 91 percent supported the proposal to delay the Kent Test, the publication said.
