Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector’s Annual Report paints a strong picture of success across early years, schools and further education in England, with 96% of early years, 86% of schools and 81% of further education and skills judged to be ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ by the inspectorate. The report also shows positive developments in social care with 48% of local authorities now judged ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’, compared with 36% after their first inspections under the previous framework.

Ofsted’s findings are a testament to the dedication and professionalism of so many individuals working hard to improve the lives of young people and adults.

The government wants to build on this and go further. Hence, we are investing an additional £14.4 billion in schools over the next three years; an extra £1 billion for adult and children’s social care every year of this Parliament; an additional £3 billion over the course of this Parliament to support the creation of a National Skills Fund; and a further £4.4 billion to fund pension contributions into the Teacher Pension Scheme, one of the best pension schemes available. We are including a further £1.8 billion for funding on capital investment into further education colleges. We are also increasing 16 to 19 funding in 2020-21 by £400 million, the biggest injection of new money in a single year since 2010.
