Wow what a 24 hours!
KS1 SPaG cancelled, national media outlets getting in touch with us to speak to YOU our lovely supporters up and down the country about the incredible #KidsStrike3rdMay events YOU are organising, mentioned in the New Day newspaper and on BBC Radio 4 breakfast news! We also hit the 10,000 likers mark on our facebook page!
We believe this is the first time parents have made such an active stand against the Government on a national scale and we have achieved an incredible amount in just over 3 weeks by WORKING TOGETHER to show our SUPPORT for schools and teachers.
We are delighted that KS1 SPaG tests have been cancelled, however we need to carry on our campaign to make sure this is only the start as OUR children still have other SATs to sit in 2016. We have the perfect chance NOW to show that teacher assessment alone IS enough and SATs should be removed from OUR schools.
For everything you need to take part on 3rd May please visit the Let Kids Be Kids website – there’s FAQs, absence letters and you can add your event to our map to ensure that every person who makes a stand is accounted for. Many wonderful headteachers and lovely class teachers have come out to support our campaign – we really think this is a turning point in how our children will be taught in the future. Thank you for being a part of it.
We are very close to 25,000 people signing our peititon to support a SATs boycott… please keep sharing… Parent Power is proving to be very powerful!
Thank you, Let Our Kids Be Kids.
