I welcome my hon. Friend Mr French to his place, and of course I welcome Bridget Phillipson to hers—a great promotion for her. The work of her predecessor, Kate Green, has been invaluable in what we can do together, especially with covid.
I commend the work of my right hon. Friend Nick Gibb throughout his tenure as Minister for School Standards, during which time the proportion of disadvantaged pupils entered for the EBacc increased from 9% in 2011 to 27% in 2021.
