Children_writingUK. Nicky Morgan announces new measures to ensure every child leaves school with world-class qualifications in crucial subjects.

• Bar raised so a ‘good pass’ grade at GCSE will match that of top-performing countries
• Behaviour expert to develop new training that backs teachers and deals with low-level disruption in classrooms – which costs pupils an hour of learning a day
• Schools to ensure every pupil studies core academic subjects

Nicky Morgan has cemented the government’s commitment to social justice with a raft of new measures to ensure every child leaves school with world-class qualifications in crucial academic subjects.

The plans underline the government’s clear one-nation agenda – giving every child the chance to go to a great school, securing them a brighter future and giving families the assurance that their children are getting the very best education and opportunities.

The move marks the final stage of reform to GCSEs and follows bold reforms to the education system – with more than a million more children now in ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ schools than in 2010.

The new measures will place our education system on a par with the best-performing countries, pushing expectations and aspirations of young people and ensuring they can compete with peers across the globe to secure the government’s vision of full employment.
