Target Creativity Campaign

2nd May 2003 at 01:00
Today in The TES we launch our Target Creativity Campaign.

The obsession with English and maths tests at 11 is distorting the primary curriculum.

Schools should ignore targets handed down from above and focus on a much broader range of subjects and achievements.

Our survey of the impact of national targets (below and page 6) shows that many heads agree. On a further five pages (from page 20) we show why creativity in the classroom is so important.
