Head teachers in England have criticised arrangements for scoring this year’s Sats tests taken by 11-year-olds. The National Association of Head Teachers says this year’s primary school league tables will be based on “a flawed statistical model”. The government says this year’s results will be robust but are only an interim arrangement ahead of wider changes. It is changing the Sats system after a review by Lord Bew. Last week, 10- and 11-year-olds in England took Sats papers in English and maths, the results of which are used to compile the primary school league tables.
