Exam Stress Time

Why are school children still judged on their English Maths and Science grades – who decided this? Why and when? I love this letter from a Headteacher to his student’s parents.

There is so much depression and anxiety amongst our teens that exam scheduling and methods seem to be so antiquated, stressful and cruel. Isn’t it time that they were challenged? In the meantime, let us all look after our children going through this for the next couple of months with space, kindness, consideration and love.
