One of our regular bloggers, Aimee Collins, on her hopes and fears for the year…
Rescue Our Schools has been asked to submit evidence to the cross-party education committee of MPs on the impact of covid-19. We would love to hear from as many of our followers as possible your answers to the following key questions on primary age children (we will be doing secondary in a few days):
What will be the effect of cancelling formal tests (primarily SATs at KS1 and KS2) on children, teachers and schools?
What alternative methods of assessment should be used? What advantages could other forms of assessment offer?
What are the key reasons Baseline should not be introduced this autumn term?
What do you think the impact of cancelling statutory assessment will be on pupils’ progress to secondary school/KS2?
Please email your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you in advance!
