"We need an education system that is on a par with the world's best. Our academies programme is turning around hundreds of under performing schools, we are introducing a world class curriculum and our reforms to exams will create qualifications that will keep pace with the demands of universities and employers.
"We want to give schools the freedom to reward teachers' good performance. This will be much fairer than the current arrangements which see the vast majority of teachers automatically getting a pay rise each year. We have met frequently with the NUT and NASUWT to discuss their concerns and will continue to do so."
