Kate Green has been appointed as the new shadow education secretary.
The MP for Stretford and Urmston, a former chief executive of the Child Poverty Action Group, replaces Rebecca Long-Bailey, who was sacked on Thursday.
She has previously served as a shadow minister for disabled people, shadow minister for women and equalities and shadow minister for child poverty strategy.
Green said: “It’s a privilege to have been asked to serve as shadow education secretary.
“The coronavirus pandemic has had a devastating impact on children’s education. I look forward to working with teachers, unions, parents and councils to help ensure we get our children back in school as soon as possible.”
Starmer said: “Kate has spent a lifetime campaigning against child poverty and educational inequalities. I look forward to working with her in this new role.”
