More Than a Score Baseline Update (05/05/20)
Just to update you on the postcard activity on Baseline which is taking place today. To coincide with Education Questions in the Commons, More Than A Score is asking supporters to send a virtual postcard to Nick Gibb and the DfE using social media – it would be great if you would take part and spread the word within your networks. The latest from DfE (confirmed in an answer to a Parliamentary Question this week) is only that the test is “under review” and further guidance will be provided to schools “in the summer term”. So we think now is the time to ramp up the pressure to get the Government to commit to it not taking place.
Please tweet or post the attached image. You can use the following words or adapt the post. The key message is that Baseline should not go ahead in September or at all next academic year.
Hello @educationgovuk @NickGibbUK and @GavinWilliamson. Surely you won’t be testing 4-year-olds in the new school year? It’s the last thing children, teachers and heads need. Will you now state Baseline won’t happen next academic year? #MoreThanAScore #receptionbaseline
