There have been a number of recent reports on inequality and social mobility in the UK, including the Office for National Statistics’ report on Poverty and Employment Transitions on March 10th; and Oxford University’s report on disadvantaged students on March 17th.

These and other reports underline the importance of the Government’s efforts to improve social mobility, and why we have prioritised the £2.5 billion pupil premium, early years education for the disadvantaged and created the Social Mobility & Child Poverty Commission to hold the Government to account.
