MTAS Yorkshire aims to highlight and inform parents, teachers and other interested parties in the local area about what is currently happening in education across England and how this affects the children in our society.

“The chorus of unhappy voices is growing stronger by the day. If we want a truly world class, 21st century education for our children, it’s time the government listened properly both to professionals and to parents.”

“I have been in education for 35 years, I have been a head teacher for 23 years, and now it is harder than ever to enable real learning to be taking place.”
Dr Pam Jarvis, a teacher, academic, psychologist and grandmother explains how young children learn and why the primary assessment system needs reform
