Kevin Brennan MP, Labour’s Shadow Schools Minister, commenting on the primary school league tables, said:

"We should congratulate hard working primary school pupils and teachers on these results.

"But still not enough schools are making the grade in the 3Rs. Michael Gove and David Cameron are threatening standards by cutting back English and Maths tuition programmes for primary school children and with an old fashioned curriculum.

"The Government should focus on raising school standards not launching a war on teachers."
