Knight considers change in well-being measurement

Children & Young People Now:

Speaking at a Labour Party conference event, hosted by teachers’ union NASUWT and the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL), the minister [Jim Knight] said he would evaluate the option [well-being through self-evaluation] in comparison with score-based approaches. He also admitted the government would be “foolish” to give schools too much responsibility for well-being.

As I’m sure you know the consultation on the indicators and how they’ll be introduced to schools closes this week.

Update – I’ve been reminded that the consultation that ended the other day isn’t about what the indicators will be – that’s still to come and I’ll be looking out for that.  Rather it was about the contribution of schools to those indicators, whatever they’ll be.
