On Wednesday 27 June, the secretary of state Damian Hinds appeared before the House of Commons Education Select Committee to answer MPs’ questions on a whole range of issues.
Unsurprisingly, the first topic on the agenda was school funding and Hinds assured MPs that he would be seeking to ensure all education settings are funded to the level the public expect in the forthcoming spending review but would not be drawn on exactly how much he would be asking the Treasury for. The committee are holding a separate inquiry on funding.
Other topics covered included careers guidance, the wellbeing of pupils, exclusion of children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), the accountability system, teacher workload and retention.
