Support for schools and children

Today the government has announced a £700 million recovery package for children and young people in England – helping them to catch up on learning lost due to the pandemic and access the opportunities they deserve to learn and fulfil their potential.

  • Everyone is grateful for the heroic efforts of teachers and parents who have been home schooling during coronavirus, but we all know that the classroom is the best place for our children to be. 
  • To further support the re-opening of schools on 8 March the government is are providing a £700 million programme of catch-up funding, including a Recovery Premium for the most disadvantaged students, funding the extension of the already successful National Tutoring Programme and delivering face-to-face summer schools. 
  • This extensive programme of catch-up funding will equip teachers with the tools and resources they need to support their pupils, and give children the opportunities they deserve to learn and fulfil their potential.
