Nicky Morgans Speech to Conference

Nicky Morgans Speech to Conference

We’ve raised the bar on standards in schools with a rigour revolution:


-    An end to qualifications that employers and universities didn’t value and to the grade inflation that wrecked confidence in our exams.


-    A tough new national curriculum that fosters a love for literature, a grasp of arithmetic and an appreciation of our history.


-    120,000 more six year olds on track to become confident readers thanks to our focus on phonics, and record numbers of 11 year olds mastering the 3Rs.


We’ve taken politicians and bureaucrats out of our classrooms. With:


-       3000 heads in good and outstanding schools trusted with the freedom to run those schools.


-    1000 failing schools transformed under the leadership of strong sponsors.


-    More than 300 free schools set up by parents, teachers and community groups who demanded more than what they were offered.


We’ve been relentless in our focus on the young people most at risk of being left behind by:


-    Speeding up the adoption process to help young people find a loving home and;


-    Providing joined up support for children with special educational needs and their parents.


And we’re backing working parents by offering them 30 hours of free high quality childcare
