Further to the brief post earlier today: we now have a live e-petition on the Downing Street web-site and we would be very grateful if you could sign it. Just click on http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/OpenEYE/ and follow the instructions. It literally only takes a couple of seconds although there may then be a delay of some hours before your name finally appears so don’t lose heart!
Please also e-mail as many of your friends/family as possible, directing them to the petition. Our aim is to have thousands of signatures by the end of January 2008, when we will be meeting with the Chairman of the Children, Schools & Families Select Committee to try and persuade the Committee to commission an urgent independent review of the EYFS framework.
