Primary pupils in England could be ranked nationally at 11

Primary school pupils in England could be ranked directly against their peers across the country, under government plans to change performance measures.

Pupils aged 11 would be ranked in 10% ability bands across the year group and parents told how they measured up.

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said: "For children to achieve their potential, we need to raise the bar."
