Hello everyone, I am student who is in my final year of studying early childhood studies and have applied to go into primary school teaching via SCITT, I am doing my dissertation on spending cuts in primary schools and how this has affected teaching? if it has? as well as the idea of neoliberalism in primary schools which has a masked agenda on focusing on performance and grades and having this one system that ''fits all'' and if you pass you are successful and if you do not pass then you get left behind as their is ''no place'' for ''them'' , so what i really wanted to find out was: As teachers do you feel accountable for having a focus on reaching grade performance? ( being accountable to Ofsted to prove performance and grade targets) What are the negatives and positives of accountability and performativity in primary schools? How does this affect your teaching? Thank you very much for taking your time to read this and if you can reply please do it would be a great help to me and I can take any answers and advice and adapt them to my own practice to ensure I can be the best teacher to my best possible ability.
