Dear Nicky Morgan, We- the Year Six pupils of Andoversford Primary School- are writing to your department regarding this year’s SATS reading test, which was incredibly long and stressful for many children, as well as using texts that were difficult and uninspiring. Firstly, we are deeply disappointed by the poor quality of the texts included […]

We couldn’t believe how brave the athletes involved are, and how they have been through so much but are still so […]

Nicky Morgan, watch out…
