Wendy Ellyatt , Founding Director of the Save Childhood Movement speaks out against the pressure placed on children to perform and meet standards at too young an age; “There is nothing wrong with seeking high educational standards and accountability, but there is surely something very wrong indeed if this comes at the cost of natural development, creativity, diversity and child well-being”.

Too many assessments, far too soon for schoolchildren, Wendy Ellyatt, The Telegraph, 12 September 2013.
