Lack of English and maths progress

One in six primary school children are failing to progress by the expected two levels on the assessment scale in English or maths by the time they reach the age of 11, this year's Sats results show.


Shadow police minister Vernon Coaker has said it was “absurd” for police minister Nick Herbert to claim there was not a “simple link” between police numbers and crime levels. New research released by shadow home secretary Ed Balls claims police forces could see cuts of 6,000 officers this year.


A website that connects young people with their peers to discuss bullying issues received £1m in government support last week. The programme could "continue to improve the lives of young people", schools minister Vernon Coaker said.


Local authorities are creating new classrooms as state primary schools face their biggest influx of pupils in a decade.
