To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what guidance he has published for schools on ensuring that disadvantaged pupils receive additional tuition after the school closures resulting from covid-19 outbreak.
15 April 2020
We recognise that many schools have already shared resources for children who are at home and are grateful for this.
We want to support parents and schools to ensure young people’s education can continue. Support available includes:
- a list of online education resources which have been identified by some of the country’s leading educational experts to help pupils to learn at home which are available at the following link: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-online-education-resources
- the BBC enhancing its education provision to include daily lessons, starting from 20 April 2020.
We are committed to doing everything we can to reduce the impact of school closures on pupils.
