Almost 200 schools have withdrawn from the government’s Baseline test pilot, bringing the number of schools who have refused to take participate to well over 5,000 in total.
The More Than A Score campaign has employed a variety of high-profile, creative tactics to oppose the government’s plans to test 4-year-olds when they start school.
Our petition has generated over 75,000 signatures; the March of
the 4-Year-Olds in Westminster achieved front page news in The
Guardian; we have published expert research demonstrating
overwhelming opposition, and parents have lobbied their
headteachers not to participate in the government’s pilot scheme.
And schools have listened.
