The flaws in Attainment 8 – Part 1:
Should schools be most accountable to the community or the government?
The government maybe looking to introduce another new “accountability measure” into the education system, the ideas being discussed are about testing at KS1, tests for four to five year-olds.
From our Trust’s community engagement programmes we know that most people have not yet caught up with the changes of 2016, a major portion of these changes are the introduction of Attainment 8, Progress 8 and new GCSE grading levels which are scored from 1 to 9. The Futurist (Haringey) magazine is part of your local home-school knowledge exchange (HSKE) which is building up connections between “schools” (a variety of learning spaces) to find ways to help progressive schools engage in knowledge exchanges with families and other community integrated learning spaces. So before preparing this special report article we spoke to local teachers, school governors (including two Chairs of Governors), parents and young learners, none were able to confidently explain the current monitoring system for schools, most basically had no idea about how Attainment 8 and Progress 8 work.
