Heads renew attack on Sats
Headteachers have launched a fresh attack on Sats tests, amid concerns that this year's papers favoured middle class pupils.
Members of heads union the NAHT criticised the national curriculum tests taken by 11-year-olds for measuring background, not ability. Some said the texts used featured material which favoured children whose parents regularly take them out on trips and have homes full of books. The Government has ordered an independent review.
