The leftie union had issued a string of gloomy warnings predicting that testing millions of secondary school kids for Covid would end in disaster.
But teachers, parents and ministers have all declared the mission a success so far.
Dr Bousted, joint boss of the National Education Union, admitted the testing blitz had gone well.
She told Times Radio: “The reports we are getting is that it has gone very, very calmly.
"The children are delighted to be back, the teachers are really pleased to see them.
“The lateral flow testing seems to be going well in schools and seems to be going very calmly.
“And the new thing in secondary schools is mask wearing, generally that appears to be going well as well.”
She added: ''Maybe this is one occasion where Gavin Williamson is right and I am wrong.''
