Head teachers have given the government until midnight on new year's eve to make sure they have enough money to implement the agreement aimed at cutting teachers' workload - or they may pull out of the deal.

The decision to threaten withdrawal was taken at the National Association of Head Teacher's annual conference in Cardiff, against the advice of the union's general secretary David Hart, who warned that primary schools would be left voiceless in discussions on how the agreement should be made to work.

The move came just a day after prime minister Tony Blair told delegates how much he appreciated the job they were doing to raise standards. He also promised that education spending would continue to rise under Labour, reports The Sunday Express(p16).
