This Government has a lot to answer for. Our children are amongst the most stressed & unhappy. And it doesn’t even work. Other countries don’t test like ours but do better: Norway, Ottawa, Finland.

Nick Gibb on has said that the goverment doesn't want primary schools to put (undue) pressure on pupils. Get rid of the SATs exams then!

Parents, heads and teachers agree: the check provides no useful information about Year 1 pupils and they shouldn’t have to sit it. It’s testing for the sake of testing and we know our children are . Join our campaign:

A great read suggesting we do as suggests and find the 'bright spots' of practise & celebrate them. Time to start focussing on the good and stop, what even have admitted is a relentless focus on testing.
