    Teachers moving to ban sats tests.

    Teachers back moves towards primary Sats boycott

    Teachers have backed plans for a possible boycott of primary school tests in England next year.

    The National Union of Teachers says the tests for seven and 11-year-olds are damaging to children and education.

    One delegate likened Sats to the "monster stalking our schools". Another said they needed to be "decapitated".

    The government is consulting on the future of primary assessment, and may scrap the tests for seven-year-olds and introduce a baseline test in reception.

    Get it all from The BBC  HERE




    I have no clue as to why sats have continued to terrorise our kids when the results are doubtful in the first place.

    Maybe the Tories like to think that primary sats are akin to the eleven plus, and they never wanted to get rid of that.

    Academies are  the next thing that are going to hit the skids as they too are part and parcel of the Troy ideal of academic streaming as opposed to comprehensive education for all.

    The only way to stop this trend is to not elect the Tories at the general election of 8th June.

    Most of the teachers are against trying to run sats testing on primary kids, and Wales and Scotland are going to do it in a  totally different way if at all.

    That's true about Wales and Scotland Zath'.

    I think that the teachers are sick to their back teeth of governments fiddling with the curriculums and making change after change in the ways that they try to teach our kids.

    Education, like the NHS, needs more money and to be left to do the job that the people on the ground are best at.

    I work in an English primary school and I can tell you all that we are totally sick of exams, exams, and more exams.

    I hope that these new sats tests are not foisted on us, as I for one would be willing to strike to stop it happening.

    For God's sake give it a rest and just let us get on with teaching your children.
