Nearly 150 people attended, including Rupa Huq MP, Councillors, Trade Unions, Faith groups and family members of the two women that were attacked. It was a magnificent response. Thank you to NEU members that attended.
Come along to join other young and new teachers in celebrating the end of another long academic year. It’s a great chance to meet other teachers across London and to find out about how you can get involved in the Union’s campaigns.
A few NEU districts beat the anti-trade union laws, most did not; should we, can we be the spark that builds the fire that sweeps away this toxic assessment system? Would a ‘Coalition of the Willing’ work? This meeting is important as a decision on this campaign will be taken at the next Executive meeting on Sat July 13th.
“Yes good I know it causes; immense stress and anxiety for my pupils, extra workload for me and they affect my Performance Management but;
What would we do instead?
How would the boycott work?
What about my Headteacher?”
Invite us into your school; discuss this with us so we can end SATs and make this campaign work for the sake of our pupils and ourselves.
We know the harm High Stakes Testing (SATs) does to our pupils. We know it narrows and restricts teaching and learning. Our Headteachers agree with us and now so do Labour and Lib’ Dems’; we will explore how we turn opinion and political parties’ election pledges into reality.
