In July, the government announced a fund of £1 billion to help schools in England mitigate the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on their students’ education. The money was designated to help children and young people in ‘catch up’ with their education and make up for lost teaching time.
The fund included a £650 million catch-up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year, and a £350 million National Tutoring Programme to provide targeted support for students who needed it.
We’d like to hear from teachers and school leaders about how they have spent the money, or any problems they’ve encountered. We’d also like to hear from parents whose children have been involved in projects funded by the money about the impact it has had.
