  2. Swiftly improve the quality of teaching and learning so that it is at least consistently good across all subjects by:
      1. increasing expectations of what pupils can do so they are consistently high
      2. setting work that matches the needs and abilities of pupils and challenges them appropriately
      3. making sure that pupils of all abilities present their work neatly and take pride in their work
      4. skilfully questioning pupils to probe and deepen their understanding
      5. assessing pupils’ learning to adjust work appropriately if they are not making good progress.
  3. Rapidly improve the outcomes for all groups of pupils to make sure that they are at least good by:
      1. accelerating pupils' progress so that attainment is at least average in reading, writing and mathematics
      2. closing gaps in attainment between disadvantaged pupils and other pupils nationally
      3. deepening pupils' knowledge, skills and understanding in a wide range of subjects, especially science, history, geography and modern foreign languages
      4. expecting pupils to write at length in a wide range of subjects to deepen their knowledge
