FREE SCHOOL MEALS AND GCSE PERFORMANCE

Grim reading

Comment

Michael Goves main line of attack  on the government when he was  Shadow Education Secretary was that education reforms and investment  had largely bypassed those pupils  on free school meals. So, what are the latest figures? 30.9 per cent of pupils eligible for FSM achieved 5 or more A*-C grades at GCSE or equivalent including English and mathematics GCSEs, compared to 58.5 per cent of pupils not known to be eligible for FSM. Not good.
