Answered By: 
The Mayor

My focus is taking forward the recommendations of my Education Inquiry to support excellent teaching in London schools. This includes direct support to teachers, including through projects funded by the London Schools Excellence Fund. Teacher retention in London is an important part of ensuring excellent teaching and so I look forward to reading the report when it is published by the Secretary of State.
