More Than A Score
More Than A Score is a coalition of parents, heads, teachers and education experts calling for better assessment and fairer accountability in English primary schools.
Primary school pupils in England are among the most tested in the world. They’re used as data points in a system which damages their education and benefits no-one.
The government is now introducing standardised testing in reception classes. Four-year-olds will be tested in English and Maths within a few weeks of starting school. It’s the latest stop on the assembly line of assessment in primary schools. We believe children deserve better.
