Fightback launched against exams for four-year-olds
A CAMPAIGN was launched by a coalition of 15 groups yesterday against government plans to impose educational tests on four-year-olds.

The tests, known as “baseline assessments,” are to start in 2020.

They are opposed by the coalition called More Than a Score, which launched a dossier entitled Baseline Assessment: It Doesn’t Add Up, warning that the government’s plans are “statistically uninformed and educationally damaging.”

The groups include the National Education Union (NEU), British Educational Research Association and the Association of Child Psychotherapists.
