Nadhim Zahawi – 2022 Comments on Schools Bill

The comments made by Nadhim Zahawi, the Secretary of State for Education, on 8 May 2022.

Our new Schools Bill, alongside the Schools White Paper, will create a school system that works for every child, parent and family, bringing every school up to our current best standards.

We want every school to be part of an academy trust, enabling teachers to focus on what they do best – meeting the needs of every child. Schools’ approach to attendance is being overhauled to make sure every child gets the benefit of every possible hour in the classroom.

In combination, this work will make sure every child has access to an education that they deserve and helps them fulfil their potential.
