Opportunity for All

Any child who falls behind in maths or English will get the support they need to get back on track, the Education Secretary has pledged.

Children who need help will be provided with targeted support such as small group tuition, and parents will be kept informed about their child’s progress. 90% of primary school children are expected to achieve the KS2 standard in reading, writing, and maths by 2030.

The national average GCSE grade in both English language and maths is to increase from 4.5 in 2019 to 5 in 2030 as part of the same initiative.

New Measures to Support These Goals

  • Schools will offer a minimum school week of 32.5 hours by September 2023
  • Ofsted will inspect every school by 2025, including the backlog of ‘outstanding’ schools that haven’t been inspected for many years
  • By 2030 all children will benefit from being taught in a school in, or in the process of joining, a strong multi-academy trust, which will help transform underperforming schools and deliver the best possible outcomes for children
  • At least £100m to put the Education Endowment Foundation on a long-term footing so they can continue to evaluate and spread best practice in education across the country


“By making sure every child receives excellent teaching which helps them reach their full potential, we will spread opportunity and futureproof our mission to level up the country.”

Prime Minister Boris Johnson

Propeller Rapid Recall Boards

Rapid Recall Boards are a great way to increase students’ number fluency and recall. Each A3, double-sided whiteboard helps to embed key number principles from years 1-6 in short, non-haunting assessments without the permanence of pen and paper.
