SATs cancelled in 2021

The government has finally recognised that there is no place for SATs or any formal statutory tests in this school year. Now primary schools and especially year 6 pupils can focus on loving learning and enjoy a broad and stimulating curriculum, even in the current difficult circumstances.

The More Than A Score coalition includes tens of thousands of concerned parents, heads, teachers and education experts. We believe the government must now listen to those who know children best. It’s time to drop SATs and other formal government tests for good and work together to create an accountability system for schools that does not rest on the shoulders of every young child in the country.

If you believe children are more than a score, please join our campaign today.
