The best action for primary schools that are "not stepping up to the mark" is for them to be taken over by academy sponsors, according to the Department for Education.
Schools with a long history of under-performance, and who are not stepping up to the mark, will be taken over by an academy sponsor.
The expertise and strong leadership provided by sponsors is the best way to turn around weak schools and give pupils there the best chance of a first-class education.
Despite DfE findings that 767 schools are failing to meet the Government's new tougher targets, the data suggested that overall primary schools are improving.
Last year 834 primaries would have fallen below the new standards.
