This report shows Michael Gove has the wrong priorities. It says we need to provide more support in basic skills at primary level, but this Government has cut support for catch-up tuition in English and maths, resulting in a 40% drop in the number of pupils getting this help.
A report has found that even the brightest pupils in England are falling behind in maths, from the age of 10.
Education Minister Elizabeth Truss said the report was a "damning indictment of Labour's record on education."

This Government is clearing up Labour's mess. Our reforms - tougher discipline, more rigorous exams, more freedom for headteachers, a more demanding curriculum and higher quality teaching - will drive up standards so our pupils have a first-class education that matches the best in the world.
England's cleverest pupils match peers from leading East Asian countries in maths until the age of 10, but are two years behind by the age of 16.
New research has found that even the brightest youngsters are behind pupils in nations such as Hong Kong and Taiwan, suggesting more needs to be done to keep them apace.
The Institute of Education, University of London used results from the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) and the Trends in Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS).
It concluded that the gap widens between the ages of ten and 16.
