Our coverage of Sir Richard Sykes' review on March 26 contained a couple of inaccuracies. The headline "Tories would ditch pupil deprivation from tables" was incorrect - the party's position is to seek to reform or replace CVA. We also suggested that "the number of subjects each pupil takes would be 'greatly reduced'". This, too, is incorrect. Under Sir Richard's proposals pupils could take numerous other externally assessed qualifications, only the number of qualifications used for the purposes of Government accountability would be reduced. Apologies for the confusion.
