On Thursday 25 April, we’ll be marching to 10 Downing Street to hand in our petition demanding a halt to the government’s plans to test four-year-olds when they start school. A group of 4-year-olds will personally deliver the signatures to number 10.
Our petition, which topped 64,000 signatures earlier this month, is growing every day. Now it’s time for the government to listen to parents, teachers, heads and education experts. Those who know our children best all agree: testing four-year-olds makes no sense.
We want as many pre-school children and parents as possible to join us on the day. The details are:
The March of the 4-Year-Olds
12:00-12:15: Gather in Parliament Square
12:30: March to Downing Street
13:00: Hand in petition at 10 Downing Street
Please also bring signs, placards and musical instruments. We want to be seen and heard!

We look forward to seeing you there.
