The National Association of Head Teachers urges strong caution in the use of test data from primary schools in 2016.  As a result of dramatic changes to the tests themselves and mistakes in their design, the data is not a reliable measure of school or pupil performance.  It should not be compared to past years or to results in other schools.  The government has also urged caution in the use of the results and have said that the 2016 results alone cannot be used for formal intervention in schools.
