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."
– Elizabeth Truss, Education Minister
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.
