The Government has introduced a performance measurement system into state schools. For primary schools the measure is the percentage of pupils achieving level 4 or above at Key Stage 2 and no additional benefit derives from pupils achieving above level 4.
Hence, the governors of any state school who use state funds on pupils to stretch them above level 4 must be risking a charge of misuse of public funds.
