Bennett et al. (1984) had shown that even the most highly regarded teachers had difficulty in differentiating effectively in primary classrooms. The period ended with the publication of the Second International Mathematics Study (SIMS), reporting international comparative performance in school mathematics. This study’s findings were interpreted as showing the performance of English 13-year-olds to be mediocre compared with our economic competitors, some 1 to 2 years behind on average, and, most unnervingly, to have declined relative to other countries since the First International Mathematics Study, (FIMS) some 20 years previously.
First, the measures of improved standards in primary schools are almost entirely controlled by the government and exclusively concentrated on the core subjects. There is no independent agency systematically evaluating the impact of the new curriculum as a whole. As Richards (1998: 141) pointed out, the assertion in the 1997 White Paper that we have, ‘sound, consistent national measures of pupil achievement’ is debatable. Most of the measures depend on the reliability of national testing and Ofsted inspection data, which has been contested.
The strategies were also regarded as providing pace, structure and objectives that helped children to understand the purpose of their work and to work harder. In some schools the NLS was regarded as having brought about considerable improvements in the teaching of reading. However, this was also an area that headteachers often felt had been well taught before the NLS with many teachers declaring that to varying degrees they had always used phonics to teach reading. The most frequently cited major benefit was that ‘it’s hugely increased the number of genres that children are exposed to both in reading and in writing and that is an enormous plus’ and ‘gets children interested in all forms of literature’.
