Baseline Assessment

Primary school is a time for self-discovery, building confidence and nourishing potential. But primary school children in England are being let down by a system that cares more about measurement than their education.

Our system is obsessed with league tables, turning children into data points and denying them a broad, stimulating education at key stages in their development. It puts an unnecessary burden on children, parents and teachers alike.

More Than a Score believes there is another way. We’re a growing coalition of parents, teachers, heads and education experts, working together to call for change in the government’s over-testing regime.

Find out more about what we can do together to show that children are More Than A Score.

LET OUR KIDS BE KIDS

Let Our Kids Be Kids was launched in 2016 by a parents who’ve had enough… enough of endless testing, enough of teachers not being trusted to teach, enough of an Ofsted driven, dull, dry curriculum aimed solely at passing National Curriculum Tests (SATs).

We’ve developed Wellbeing Guides for young people, parents and teachers, to help promote an emotionally healthy approach to exams. These are packed with practical tips and ideas to support young people before, during and after exam time.

Practical Help in Exams

Pupils who have learning difficulties and disabilities may qualify for help (known as ‘access arrangements’) in public examinations. The most common arrangements are for extra time, or provision of a computer, or a person to read or write for the pupil (except for exams that specifically test these skills, such as English). There is a range of other possible arrangements for pupils with visual or hearing impairments, or other difficulties.
