The National Association of Head Teachers has advised its members to reject education departments' targets for pupil attainment.

The union, which represents over 30,000 school leaders, has issued guidance recommending members set 'challenging and realistic' targets for their schools.

NAHT general secretary David Hart said: 'The government's unrelenting emphasis on target setting means primary and secondary schools face unbelievably tough challenges.

'Heads object to the government's top-down approach, which uses education departments as battering rams in an attempt to force schools to agree targets that match those set for education departments by local government.'
