Call to reconsider baseline in Reception

Recommended Posts

The 'More than a score' coalition has launched its critique of new government proposals for testing four-year olds, and is calling for the plans to be dropped. At a meeting hosted by Shadow Early Years Minister Tracy Brabin, parents, teachers and educational experts from the More Than a Score coalition exposed what they believe are flaws in the Government’s latest plans to test very young children, and called for the proposal to be dropped.
