1. Build the boycott of tests for four year olds
2. Pressure your MP to agree the NUT Manifesto for Education
Conference agreed to continue with the three pronged strategy of engaging with the public (especially parents), pressuring MPs as well as taking action with the Stand up For Education campaign at the centre. No national action this year was agreed, however on the Monday conference agreed to ballot members for action in the autumn should the budget by education be cut by whichever government.
There were lots of interesting speeches on other areas beyond pay and conditions, which I will feedback on this blog. However in terms of this term the priorities for members would be to pressure MPs into telling you if they agree with our Manifesto for Education, the other activity for which we will need to involve members will be on leafleting the public/parents regarding our proposed boycott (subject to ballot) of the tests for four year olds – it is going to be a busy summer term – have a good one
