Primary school is a time for self-discovery, building confidence and nourishing potential. But primary school children in England are being let down by a system that cares more about measurement than their education.
Our system is obsessed with league tables, turning children into data points and denying them a broad, stimulating education at key stages in their development. It puts an unnecessary burden on children, parents and teachers alike.
More Than a Score believes there is another way. We’re a growing coalition of parents, teachers, heads and education experts, working together to call for change in the government’s over-testing regime.
Heads, parents and governors can unite and demonstrate their opposition to a system saturated with high-pressure testing by signing and displaying our Pledge.
Are you one of a growing number of heads who believe that the government’s standardised testing regime is not fit for purpose? Add your voice to our campaign.
More Than A Score is about parents and teachers coming together to change a system that doesn’t work.
