Moving the furniture, always moving ...

Watching a good friend and experienced educator rant online about their daughters school and what seems to be four changes in four terms, when it comes to the exams they are registered for.

This is a student who is on the gifted and talented register and has ambitions to become a vet, something I think they will excel at.

Veterinarians don't take any old qualification, the entry criteria to the few universities that support this practice and education of vets, tend to want some very specific subjects. So, BTEC/OCR and EBacc are not on this list.

Nothing wrong with any of these qualifications, but they are not what were originally agreed, on the options and in the trajectory of this child. Instead, a school desperate to play the league table lottery, with each child being one of the balls they gamble with. Are clearly playing tactical games to use this child amongst others to better their potential results in qualifications they percive have 'statistical' value.

Not like the future of the child has any value.
