Teaching during the pandemic

The current global crisis has proven what many have known all along: teaching is a vital profession for the future of our country.

Did you know only:

  • 22% of children eligible for free school meals achieve grade 5 (high C or B) or above in English and maths at GCSE
  • 26% of disadvantaged pupils make it to university, compared with 85% of children from independent schools.
