‘Dear Damian Hinds, OFSTED forget our 4 year olds are NOT GCSE apprentices’ Michael Rosen
I couldn’t agree more. We need to change the rest of the education system not the best we currently have!
Take education OFF the political agenda and hand our children’s education and well-being over to child development experts...let them create something that means our children feel valued and heard.
Let them create something that allows ALL children to flourish. Let them create something that allows children to learn holistically as they are meant to. Let them create something that allows children to develop a passion for lifelong learning. Let them create something that builds both confidence and resilience. Let them create something that recognises our children are the future of our society as a whole, not just the future of industry and business.
Hand it over and watch the government gain the results they are so desperate for; handing it over does NOT mean it comes at the expense of academic achievement it will only enhance it.
Bold Beginnings DOESN'T tell us that the foundation stage isn't what's best for children it tells us that what awaits them afterwards isn't.
Let them create something for the children and NOT for government
