Resist the 'progressive' attack on phonics https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2022/01/26/resist-progressive-attack-phonics2/
Congratulations! What wonderful news.
Today marks a precious day in my life.
Asser and I tied the knot to be partners for life. We celebrated a small nikkah ceremony at home in Birmingham with our families. Please send us your prayers. We are excited to walk together for the journey ahead.
Congratulations to @nadhimzahawi who will do a superb job in building on the reforms of the last ten years. I am sad not to be continuing as Schools Minister. It has been a privilege to play a part in helping improve the life chances of the next generation.
Congratulations to all who’ve received their grades today - the culmination of two years’ hard work & a tribute to all they’ve achieved over 13 years. Thank you to their teachers for their commitment and hard work in assessing & submitting grades.
It's #ResultsDay for AS, A level and some vocational and technical qualifications.
We've answered some of the most frequently asked questions from pupils and parents about today.
James Kirkup really understood my speech @SMFthinktank yesterday about why a knowledge rich curriculum is inclusive. (Shame about the photo!). @jameskirkup https://www.spectator.co.uk/article/should-children-be-taught-that-britain-s-history-is-glorious-or-shameful- via @spectator
Real pleasure to speak at the @SMFthinktank today about why a knowledge-rich curriculum is so important. https://www.gov.uk/government/speeches/the-importance-of-a-knowledge-rich-curriculum
Ensuring our young people are equipped with the knowledge they need is more important than ever. Today I set out the importance of teaching a knowledge-rich curriculum to truly level up opportunity across the country.

Supporting our teachers with the highest quality training and development is the best way we can improve pupil outcomes. As we move forward with the ITT market review, we are committed to ensuring there continues to be enough training places to meet the teacher supply need.
Ensuring children of all backgrounds develop high standards of reading is vital to helping them reach their potential. My piece in TES today sets out how our new Reading Framework shares best practice in effective ways of teaching children to read https://www.tes.com/news/nick-gibb-literacy-teaching-early-reading-well-avoids-demotivation
It’s inspiring on #ThankATeacherDay to see so many messages from pupils and their families celebrating this country’s teachers – like Miss Bate finding a creative and engaging way to teach multiplication tables.
We love to see teachers using technology and creativity to bring their lessons to life.
Like Miss Bate, who's making learning the times tables fun with the help of her drone 😀
Thoroughly enjoyed speaking with @g20org Ministers today about tackling educational poverty globally and strengthening our international partnerships #G20
It was inspiring to hear from pupils and staff at @BolnorePrimary today how the school is taking #ClimateAction, marking six months to #COP26 #TogetherForOurPlanet
The Duke of Edinburgh’s life of duty and service to the Monarch and the UK inspired the admiration of millions around the world. His obvious love and support of HM The Queen and for the monarchy served our country well. My thoughts are with Her Majesty and the Royal Family.
It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle.
Behaviour Hubs will help schools improve their approach to managing behaviour. Staff & students at @bedsfreeschool, one of the lead schools in the programme, tell us how good behaviour helps pupils to focus on learning and feel happy about being in school
'Put simply, there are no great schools without great teachers'
A package of measures will see the DfE build back better teaching careers, writes @NickGibbUK
This is a really heartening piece by @ModernCassie, about how her "small, rural, coastal, deprived and remote" primary school provides a rich music curriculum to all pupils.
It is vital that we strengthen early education to ensure children build their vocabulary and reading skills as they move into Year 1. We have published the new statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage to be rolled out in September 2021.
My letter @thetimes on the new Model Music Curriculum:
@yolandabrown @thekannehmasons @tasminlittle
Today @educationgovuk published the Model Music Curriculum - helping schools provide high quality music education for all children. Liverpool Philharmonic’s Peter Garden is a member of the Government’s Expert Panel which has overseen its development.
The importance of the Model Music Curriculum is its shining light on the intrinsic qualities of music as a subject in its own right. My full statement for @MusicTeachers_:
Really excited about the model music curriculum finally launching today. For anyone who's interested I'll be tweeting today about some of the music it in today starting with...
Really excellent to see new Model Music Curriculum announced by @educationgovuk today implementing recommendations from @veronicawadley and to hear @NickGibbUK reaffirm his commitment to high quality music education for all. My new @ace_national blog here: https://www.artscouncil.org.uk/blog/why-music-education-matters
Wow I am very emotional! The new Model Music Curriculum released by the Department of Education will add so much joy to many children! Eclectic & Diverse repertoire too! Thank you @educationgovuk @NickGibbUK
@ABRSM & the team involved
The new Model Music Curriculum is now live. Let's get behind this once in a generation chance to give all our children access to music! @ShekuKM @NickyBenedetti @yolandabrown @JessGillamSax @tasminlittle @RCMLondon @ace_national @ABRSM

My story in tomorrow’s @TelegraphMag : how young Conservative students - inc @NickGibbUK and @RobbieGibb - smuggled documents out of the former Soviet Union, providing a lifeline for Russian dissidents under brutal Communist rule. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2021/03/19/senior-tories-secret-soviet-past/?WT.mc_id=tmgliveapp_iosshare_Aw1pkKkSdZXr
It was good to see how excited the pupils at @GoldfinchPrmry were for their first day back at school today. I want to thank all the staff for their hard work supporting pupils at home and now back in the classroom.
#WorldBookDay2021 is a chance for young people to celebrate what they most enjoy about reading. We want all children to have the opportunity to read widely and have strengthened the curriculum to help them do so & get the most out of the endless opportunities books can offer.
Lights, camera, vaccine! 🎬
Thanks @eltonofficial and @themichaelcaine for encouraging people to get the #COVIDVaccine. (Sorry it didn't quite work out, Elton.) 😬
This is a great initiative that builds on our work to get more children reading.
Books fire a child’s imagination, improve literacy, and open doors to new worlds, not to mention the positive impact they have on mental health. Thank you to everyone who gets involved. https://twitter.com/TheSun/status/1355809529250910209

Learning about the Holocaust can help pupils understand the consequences of antisemitism and other forms of extremism. I encourage schools across the country to use @HolocaustUK and @UCL_Holocaust's online resources to support pupils’ reflections on this #HolocaustMemorialDay

The last five years have flown by. We’d been together for 29 years but had no idea how much difference marriage would make to us. Thank you to everyone who made it possible. Marriage is cool.
No one should face the fear of bullying in school or elsewhere. I am supporting #antibullyingweek alongside the many charities and schools who create safe places in the classroom and online where pupils respect each other. #Oddsocksday
The Holiday Activities and Food programme is being extended to cover Easter, Summer and Christmas 2021. Children all over England will be offered healthy meals as well as enriching activities.
Here’s how the programme helped these families in London last summer 👇
Schools can and should continue offering sports clubs and activities. More detail on this is here: https://dfemedia.blog.gov.uk/2020/11/06/schools-and-sport-under-new-restrictions-your-questions-answered/
It is vital that we keep our schools open to protect the education and wellbeing of this country’s children. We could not do this without the hard work and dedication of teachers & school staff, for which I want to say a huge thank you: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/statement-from-the-uk-chief-medical-officers-on-schools-and-childcare-reopening
It is more important than ever for staff and pupils to look after their wellbeing. On this #WorldMentalHealthDay staff at West Lea School share how they are supporting each other. https://teaching.blog.gov.uk/2020/10/09/why-a-whole-school-approach-to-wellbeing-and-mental-health-is-key/

As a BBC programme editor, I was lucky enough on occasion to get an invite into the Leeds United directors’ box. I was introduced to chairman Ken Bates, he looked me up and down and barked: “You work for the BBC? You must be a communist” Yorkshire Post
