Assessment for learning in all classrooms.

Additional personalised support for pupils not improving, to be partially distributed through a voucher scheme.

Personalised learning to become a fundamental part of teacher training.

Pilot scheme offering term long sabbaticals to high-performing,experienced teachers who commit themselves to "challenging" schools for five to seven years.

National and school-level "aspirational" targets to eliminate stalled pupil progress, with schools to identify and produce plans for those pupils not improving.

Panel of serving heads to report by September on how a system can be developed to encourage innovation in schools.

National review into developing national curriculum and tests to support personalised learning.

Parents to receive more information in easy-to-understand formats.
