Major Changes in Education in the Last Five Years

Discussion in 'Primary' started by jampot12, Aug 31, 2012.

  1. Hello everyone,
    I am giving a presentation on Tuesday to a group of foreign teachers. I have been asked to talk about major changes in education in the last 5 years.
    Would anyone be able to give me some advice on topics? Academies is one area that I am going to talk about but I would be grateful for any other suggestions.
    Many thanks

    • Exam fiascos
    • Increased focus on English & Maths attainment
    • Ofsted move to focus only on attainment not progress
    In the average classroom:
    • Not a lot [​IMG]
  3. Govt. trying to offload PRUs.
  4. Thanks everyone. Fingers crossed for tomorrow!
