"We have set ourselves the challenge of creating a school that will not only allow children the time and space they need to develop, but which will also encourage different ways of thinking about education and childhood. Ultimately, our mission is to create a school that values caring relationships based on trust, and makes heard the voices of children in all aspects of their education."

2015-11-10This is the baseline test handed to parents for reception children - tested age 4-5 in reception class in England.

A good idea? Read more about Crock of test
