The comments made by Peter Kyle, the Shadow Schools Minister, on 29 July 2021.
Today’s reports confirm what we already knew – that in amongst the shambles of last year’s examinations, the Conservatives hung state school pupils out to dry.
Rather than coming forward with a clear plan to ensure fairness in this summer’s results, the Government has been asleep at the wheel. That carelessness is putting young people’s futures at risk.
With exam results coming in just a fortnight’s time, the Government must urgently lay out what support will be available to pupils, parents and teachers on Results Day to ensure every child can progress in education or employment. A repeat of last year’s fiasco cannot, and will not, be tolerated.
