There will be a general election in 2024 and the Labour Party are currently projected to win. But what will this mean for schools?

In July 2023, Labour published a 23-page document outlining one of their five key missions: “Breaking down the barriers to opportunity”. 

It was the first time the party had laid out its full vision for education – from early years to adult learning. Several sections mentioned the specific school-related changes Labour would seek to make if they got into power. Some of these changes had already appeared in the media: putting VAT on private school fees, reforming Ofsted and focusing on mental health. 

But how popular are the policies among teachers? And which ones should the party focus on – not just in its election campaigning, but also in power?
