This paper reviews education policy in England for the period since the Conservative Government took office in 2015 to the eve of COVID-19 pandemic. We consider the effects of policies on the school system, teachers, curriculum and assessment as well as public spending. We also examine trends in outcomes (attainment, participation and exclusions), placing particular emphasis on socio-economic and spatial inequalities.
