Ofsted’s report: Bold Beginnings

Ofsted Bold Beginnings

RoS’ Emma Bishton is asking for your thoughts on the Ofsted report, Bold Beginnings.

Bold Beginnings was intended to inform what happens in schools, what happens in inspections, and future government education policy about early years. The report, based on a survey of a tiny minority of primary schools, makes recommendations for four groups of people about reception teaching. Please read our full statement here.

We would like to hear what you think by 16th February so we can publish them in our response to this report.

Pearson uk’s president, Rod Bristow, agrees with NEU joint General Secretary, Mary Bousted, that high stakes testing has harming our education. Rescue Our Schools was at the debate to launch Testing the Water, a report by education thinktank LKM Co on alternatives to high stakes testing. They suggest dropping the EBacc measure, which squeezes outs the arts, no longer linking student test results with teacher pay, and introducing national sampling as an alternative to high stakes tests.
