Thousands of parents are keeping their children from going to school today as part of an unofficial strike in protest over controversial tests for six and seven-year-olds.
The action is condemned by Education Secretary Nicky Morgan who warned that missing school even for a single day, would be "harmful" and called for those behind the "damaging" campaign to reconsider.
Schools minister Nick Gibb echoed the sentiment, and came out in support of the exams.
