In an attempt to block primary school league tables more than 1,000 school governing bodies have pledged to withold the results of tests for 11-year-olds reports The Independent (p4).

The general secretary of the National Association of Head Teachers, David Hart commented that the result of the union's survey amounted to a 'substantial vote of no confidence by governors in the government's policy'.

The government believes that 'league tables' have helped to raise secondary school standards. Gillian Shephard, the secretary of state for education said that primary schools clearly needed the same stimulus.
