It would be good to see these dreadful, stressful, pointless obstacles shrivel and vanish. If widespread boycotting hastens this, so much the better.
Parents around the country are fed up of waiting for action to be taken against SATs, despite the mounting evidence of the damage they cause to children and to schools, and so are taking matters into their own hands. Individuals and groups are boycotting SATs in 2019 – the map represents those who have let us know their intention.
The map is by no means representative of all boycott action – many parents would rather not identify themselves and will simply not send their children to school on SAT test days.
Year 6 SATs take place the week beginning 13th May, Year 2 SATs can take place at any time in May.
