This story by Jon Hutchinson and Caroline Spalding in Tes on 28th January 2019.

Two teachers involved in its formation tell you what to expect from the ECF.

The year is 2022, it’s Friday, period five, and Mr Findlay is standing at the front of his classroom. He closes his eyes and takes a deep breath.

The pupils know that Mr Findlay is just into his second year as a qualified teacher. Accordingly, two of the “livelier” pupils, Patrick and Stephen, begin to giggle at one another at the back of the classroom, conscious of an easy target. They have conspicuously chosen not to write the date as instructed and, instead, have turned to each other to engage in conversation.
