As a mother, I feel absolute outrage that my child will be branded in the way the government proposes, and as a teacher, utterly despairing about the way we are treating young people in the education system. Please support the Primary Charter campaign to stop these divisive and completely unhelpful proposals.

I have worked all my teaching career of 30 years + to combat this ranking of students. I am disappointed by this new announcement and fail to see the educational value in it.

This plan will make sure that the poorer and less academic children in society will never do anything so bold as to have ambition, feel good about themselves or feel worthy of anything. Exactly what Michael Gove wants. If he knew children, knew how they work or knew how the world needs more support than judgement, he would not want this. Giving children numbers, akin to prisoners. Disgusting, Ill-informed and worryingly flawed.
An absolutely ridiculous proposal. What is grove playing at? Children are just that, not numbers. Agreed Ann, worryingly flawed.
I am a Parent and Teacher. I see no educational value whatsoever in this proposal, and am horrified that children will be branded in this way.
