Gove’s new plan to let parents know about your qualifications and pay!

Three new measures of pupils’ progress are to be introduced to hold head teachers and ministers to account.New “readiness to progress” measures will be introduced at ages five and 11 to ensure children have the required skills to move on to the next stage of schooling. And a new “basics measure” is to be introduced for pupils at age 16. Parents will also be given more details about schools, their teachers and the pupils attending them.

This will include general details of teachers’ qualifications and pay, the number of pupils on free school meals and with special educational needs, the amount spent per pupil, and how many achieve the new measures.
