Rejected petition Cancel statutory tests for all primary school children in the academic year 2020-21

In light of the amount of missed education due to COVID, asking pupils to sit national tests at primary level in this academic year is immoral and negative to their mental health

Why was this petition rejected?

There’s already a petition about this issue. We cannot accept a new petition when we already have one about a very similar issue, or if the Petitions Committee has considered one in the last year.

Another petition calling for this is already collecting signatures:

Postpone personalised assessments in Numeracy and Reading https://petitions.senedd.wales/petitions/244581

You are more likely to get action on this issue if you sign and share a single petition.

We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards
