SATs, Baseline, phonics and times-tables tests don’t work. They’re the wrong way to test pupils and the wrong way to judge schools. Now you can join other headteachers around the country in opposing the Department for Education’s current standardised testing regime.
More Than A Score has launched the Pledge so that headteachers and schools nationwide can unite around their beliefs regarding assessment. Completing and signing the Pledge is a powerful way of demonstrating your commitment to supporting children’s overall education and well-being ahead of SATs and other forms of high-pressure testing.
Isn’t it time the government listened to you, the experts, when it comes to statutory assessment and accountability? Please order your school Pledge card now. And please tell your colleagues and networks about the Pledge, too. Together, we can change the system.
