£10 million for intensive support in four areas of the country to increase proportion of pupils in Good or Outstanding schools.
The government has today (Wednesday 19 May) reinforced its commitment to levelling up education across the country with new, locally targeted initiatives to make sure as many pupils as possible can benefit from being in a great school.
Chief Executive of Plymouth City Council, Tracey Lee, said:
"I am delighted that Plymouth is one of the first few areas to have been selected to take part in this significant national initiative."
"I am sure all education providers in the city share the excitement that Plymouth is recognised by the Government as an area that has good foundations with a place-based collaboration and is most likely to achieve success as a trailblazer of this national initiative.""There are many challenges in improving the educational achievements for all children and young people in Plymouth, and we do not underestimate these. This initiative will support us in facing these head on and achieving our vision that all children and young people in the city are able to aspire and achieve and have a bright future."
