More than three-quarters of school leaders responding to a National Association of Head Teachers survey said they had experienced problems with the marking of this year's Sats.

Their criticisms, which mainly focused on the English writing test, said marking was "erratic", "bizarre", and a "bad joke". As The TES went to press, more than 1,018 heads had reported concerns through the national survey.
