The truth about
Year 3

  • There are no high-pressure government tests in year 3. But there are government tests in four out of seven primary years
  • This causes teaching to the test, a narrow curriculum and unnecessary pressure for children, teachers and parents
  • In many schools, children in year 3 are already put in sets for English and maths to prepare for year 6 SATs
