As six-year-olds across England prepared to take the Government's controversial new reading test, three teaching unions raised fresh concerns that the check is "flawed" and could do more damage than good.

Plans for a reading test were announced by ministers last year, amid fears youngsters with poor reading skills were slipping through the net.
