Half of England's primary schools will boycott national tests due to be taken by 11-year-olds in just over a week, teaching unions claim.
National Union of Teachers general secretary Christine Blower was addressing members of the National Association of Head Teachers.
She said 50% of England's 17,000 schools would take part.
Results from the national tests - in English and maths - are used to make up the primary school league tables.
They also underpin reports by Ofsted inspectors.
