How Scandinavian teaching at a primary school differs from British methods
“Parents receive a more holistic progress report about their child’s development, this may seem somewhat strange to UK parents”
Earlier this year, the Department for Education announced plans to change the way that children across England are tested by using a statutory reception baseline assessment.
The Government hopes to introduce this by autumn 2020, but as we have seen, the decision to test children on communication, language, literacy, and maths when entering primary school, has been controversial debate around how early children should be academically tested.
Many parents and teachers argue that children should not be academically tested at four years old, as it puts too much pressure on them at such an early age, whereas others believe that introducing testing at an early age is vital.
