Greens pledge to scrap SATs and boost funding for Bristol schools

Molly is set to join protesters at the March for Education rally in Bristol on Saturday. The Green Party parliamentary candidate for Bristol West said: “Last week, primary children across Bristol took their SATS tests. It would be great if this was the last time that these pointless and stressful tests are inflicted on our children. Getting rid of SATs tests would be a big step towards broadening the curriculum away from a narrow test-driven focus. Full marks to our wonderful teachers who still manage to put creativity into lessons and inspire children to learn, but scrapping SATS would free them up to do so much more."
