More than a score
A growing army of early years professionals, academics and parents are protesting against the introduction of baseline testing in reception. Over 20,000 people have signed the More than a Score online petition over the past week.
Elaine Bennett, founder of the Facebook Group, Keeping Early Years Unique has been actively campaigning against the introduction of baseline testing, which is currently set for the trial phase in September, with full implementation due in 2020. Elaine gave a rousing speech at the NUT conference earlier this year which called for early years practitioners, parents and other professionals to stand up for what they believe and campaign against the introduction of the test.
