Fewer schools are meeting the government’s proposed “parent pledge” than before the policy was announced, new figures show.

The policy was a feature of the schools white paper, published last March, promising every child falling behind in English and maths “timely and evidence-based support to enable them to reach their full potential”.

Part of the pledge was an expectation that schools also let parents know the type of support provided.

The government told schools in May to factor in the pledge when setting budgets for this year, but since then ministers have gone quiet.
