This film sets the context of the report 'Unseen children: access and achievement 20 years on'.
It shows Her Majesty's Chief Inspector, Sir Michael Wilshaw, going back to the first school he ever taught in, St Michael's College, as well as returning to Mossbourne Academy, where he was headteacher for nine years. He discusses his experience of working with the most disadvantaged children to raise their aspirations and help them achieve their full potential in the education system. He describes how high expectations and a culture where all children were expected to achieve drove up standards.
The film also features clips of children from Fair Furlong Primary School in Bristol talking about their dreams for the future.
