More Than A Score – NAPE 034

Mark Taylor talks to NAPE Information Officer Peter Cansell about their support for More Than A Score, a growing coalition of parents, teachers, heads and education experts, working together to call for change in the government’s over-testing regime.

Children are More Than A Score

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.

Heads, parents and governors can unite and demonstrate their opposition to a system saturated with high-pressure testing by signing and displaying our Pledge.

Humanities 20:20 discussion – NAPE 033

Mark Taylor joins Dr. Tony Eaude and Professor Simon Catling in a conversation about their new project – Humanities 20:20

 

 

 

 

Join us in our campaign to restore the humanities – History, Geography, RE and Citizenship to their rightful place in the primary curriculum.

We believe the humanities play a key part in a broad and balanced school curriculum. They have a crucial role in helping children to:

  • explore the purpose & meaning of their lives,
  • build their sense of identity & self-worth and
  • develop the values that will help them to become active, inclusive and thoughtful citizens.

To find out more information about Humanities 20:20 and to sign their manifesto please visit
