Nearly a quarter of all primary schools have refused to comply with National Standards requirements - but none appear to have faced any serious consequence for breaking the law.

Schools had until the start of last month to send the Ministry of Education their 2011 charters, which had to include information about what National Standard targets they hoped to achieve by the end of this year.

According to statistics released to the Herald yesterday, 30 schools have failed to submit charters and a further 416 have submitted charters that don't include the required National Standards information.
