If data has to be collected about the achievment of children in schools then include the achievement of all children, not just the A* to C grades. It should be A* to G, Entry Level, Apprenticeships, BTechs etc.

Celebrate the achievement of all our children. Value everyone in our society and there skills.  Success at all levels should be part of the data collected about school achievement. If your exam results are not considered important unless they are Grade A* to C will you bother trying? No. This is how children who get Grades D to G at GCSE feel. However, they often have other skills, which are not part of the data collection system. Our world needs builders, plumbers, carpenters, electricians, chefs, hairdressers, etc. in the same way as it needs academics. Raise the self esteem of children and they will achieve, constantly de value their achievements and they will not.

Why is this idea important?

My idea is important because we need to have a country where all children and people are valued and have the self belief they can do well, at whatever job they do. This will help to improve the society we live in and reduce the dangers in our world.
