Protecting the education of disadvantaged children

This week it was announced that more than one million laptops and tablets have been delivered to disadvantaged children across England, ensuring they can continue to access a high-quality remote education while schools remain closed. 

  • Since the start of the pandemic, the government has made it a priority to ensure that every child has access to the world-class education that they deserve – no matter what their background or upbringing.
  • That is why, as part of the extensive package of support put in place for the most disadvantaged children, over one million laptops and tablets have been supplied for the education of those children – as part of the 1.3 million items of IT kit which will be delivered in total – and this will be alongside a further £300 million invested in tutoring programmes, building on the existing £1 billion Covid Catch Up Fund.
  • The government will continue to work to protect our children’s education throughout these unprecedented times, ensuring they have all the tools and resources they need to get on with and make the most of their lives.
