The number of primary schools below floor standards could rise this year, according to the Times Educational Supplement.

The magazine reported comments by the Department for Education that the increase in the number of primary schools not meeting the floor target would be capped at one per cent.

As 676 primaries were below the floor target last year the TES said a one per cent increase would lead to up to six or seven extra schools being below the floor target level.

A spokesman for the Department said a figure had not yet been agreed and a one per cent increase was a maximum.
