Schools in England given catch-up funds to help pupils left behind during pandemic – BBC News

The “full return” of students to schools and colleges in England on March 8th is justified by the latest data and a “robust” Covid testing regime, according to the UK government.

The Education Secretary Gavin Williamson also addressed the fact that hundreds of thousands of students have missed months of classroom education.

He announced an extra £400m for what’s being billed as a catch-up programme. £302m of that will be spent on the most disadvantaged pupils in primary and secondary schools.
