HC Deb 10 December 1991 vol 200 c414W
20. Sir Michael Neubert

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what scope he sees for the setting or streaming of pupils in primary schools; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

In the statement I issued last week, I encouraged primary teachers to explore a range of approaches to improve primary teaching, including grouping pupils according to their achievements in a particular subject, so that their individual needs can better be met.
