School joins the exam boy­cott

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

ONLY one school in the area joined the na­tional boy­cott of SAT ex­ams.

Smeeth Com­mu­nity Pri­mary School was one of just 26 schools in the county which opted not to make its pupils sit the ex­ams last week.

The boy­cott was or­gan­ised by the Na­tional Union of Teach­ers and the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Head Teach­ers who felt the ex­ams put 10-and 11-year-olds un­der too much pres­sure. It was also felt the ex­ams stopped schools from teach­ing a bal­anced cur­ricu­lum.
