Our priorities

Our aim is for all young people, regardless of their background, to fulfil their potential and access the opportunities available to them.

This means that children should start school well prepared by the time they are 5, achieve their full potential while at school and college, and be sufficiently well informed to make ambitious choices about their future as adults.

To achieve this we have prioritised 3 key areas:

  1. Priority 1: Increase the number of children achieving a good level of development in the early years
  2. Priority 2: Raise attainment in our primary and secondary schools
  3. Priority 3: Ensure that all our children benefit from a broad range of experiences throughout their school lives

Learn more about how we are working to achieve this on our blog.
