If you need any more proof please click on this link to see the results from the National Union of Teachers survey of primary teachers at their recent conference, publicly available to anyone who wants to read the full document.
In summary please be sure that teachers want an end to SATs in 2016 as much as we do. Nicky Morgan hasn’t listened to the teachers so far but maybe she will if we show her that we’re going to make our stand too.

“The NUT is calling on the Secretary of State to cancel the 2016 SATs tests… a survey of NUT primary members shows that 86% of teachers think that the Education Secretary should cancel this summer’s primary tests. Nearly 80,000 signatories on petitions to Government agree with them….
…teachers are angry and dismayed at the primary tests, which they believe are age inappropriate. Teachers are wasting precious time on preparing children for tests at the expense of offering a vibrant engaging education for their pupils.”
