Teacher: 'If Sats tests don't go, I will resign'

The annual meeting of teachers' unions this year takes place under the spectre of industrial action over tests for 11 year olds in England.

Sats tests in English and Maths are used to draw up the primary school league tables, but the National Union of teachers (Nut) is opposed to the exams arguing they narrow the curriculum in the final year of primary school and are an inaccurate tool to measure a school's success.

Reporter Gillian Hargreaves spent a day with students preparing for their Sats exams.
