SATs results annulled at ‘outstanding’ London primary school 'The [Standards & Testing Agency] investigated in response to allegations of “maladministration” of the tests at St Matthew’s Church of England Primary School in Hillingdon, which was rated ‘outstanding’ at its last Ofsted inspection in 2009. [...] The Standards and Testing Agency investigated and their decision was to annul the maths papers for all of the pupils. [...] However, [a spokeswoman for the DfE] said the decision to do so will not “adversely affect” the pupils, as the school can provide teacher assessment data to show pupil progress in maths.' SchoolsWeek.co.uk, 14th August 2018. There will be a lot more of this 'maladministration' happening than will ever come to light. Clearly there needs to be a higher Mathematical bar for entry onto Primary ITT. The school is part of a multi-academy trust running four schools. Where cheating is discovered at one school in a group, the results of all in that group should be annulled. Cheats must be disqualified from teaching. Prior assessment data must not be accepted as it cannot be trusted, emergency SATs should be taken. A message must be sent so that honest & hardworking teachers, pupils & their parents have confidence in the education system.
