More than 200,000 primary school pupils live in areas with only underperforming schools. The government must intervene if it wants to make Britain fairer
If the government is serious about boosting left-behind places, ministers need to address the disparities in our school system. In too many places, children’s prospects are being held back by schools that do not offer a decent education. In 2017, Ofsted found 490 “stuck” schools in England that had been in a cycle of inadequacy for five years or more. Research by our think tank Onward published last Friday estimated that currently over 200,000 primary-age pupils live in an area containing only Requiring Improvement or Inadequate schools.
