Stories involving David Lammy

Gove target school downgraded

The Tottenham school at the centre of a battle between Michael Gove and local MP David Lammy has been placed in special measures following a recent OFSTED inspection.

The poor performance of Downhills School may be seen as an endorsement of the Education Secretary's plan to convert the primary school to academy status, over vigorous protests from Mr Lammy.


Less than 5% of students at the UK's 20 leading universities come from neighbourhoods that traditionally see few children go to university, official figures have shown.


Higher education minister, David Lammy, has said there will be "no significant upturn" in university funding and a funding freeze will last for several years.


1,310 schools 'failing on English and Maths'

More than 1,300 primary schools are failing to reach the required standards of teaching basic levels of English and maths, figures released yesterday show. The league tables show that 1,310 fall short of the required levels, while around 150 have been below the "floor standard" for five years. The revelation comes as Labour MP David Lammy accused the education secretary, Michael Gove, of an "undemocratic and aggressive" attempt to overhaul the management of the primary school he attended as a child.


An official review is expected the declare that universities should be able to put up to undergraduate fees to up to £14,000 a year for science courses. A report by Lord Browne, expected to be published in Autumn, is expected to favour allowing fees to rise above inflation for several years.
