Too Much Testing
From 4 June we will ask primary members to take part in an indicative ballot. We will gather your views on our campaign to scrap standardised testing and whether you would be prepared to boycott all statutory high-stakes tests during the next academic year.
Support the ballot
NEU members can show their support for primary colleagues in a number of ways.
- Sign the individual national letter of support that goes to Damian Hinds
- Download the secondary collective letter to send to primary school colleagues
- Share our graphic to show your support on social media

Why teachers, parents, unions and schools need to join together and boycott baseline assessment.
