Last week, the Department for Education announced that they are increasing funding and expansion of support for pupils to combat learning loss as part of their education recovery plans.
Highlighted as an area of concern, recently it has been reported that the secondary Covid-19 UK lockdown has further disrupted pupils progress in core subjects such as their Reading and Maths. Alongside this there has also been examples of large regional differences in learning loss across England and the UK. These latest reports come as worrying, but a not so shocking truth for many education providers.
The aim of the funding is to provide equity for tutoring programmes to be funded for young people. The package of measures gives schools and education providers the tools they need to target extra support to their students. As the pandemic has had differing impacts on each individual it makes sure that when teachers identify a disadvantaged child in need of support, that extra support is available.
As recently reported, of the funding offered by the Department for Education over £570 million of the proposed investment will be offered directly to schools to help them establish a ‘local tutoring provision’ in which they are able to use new or existing staff aiming to supplement the work of the National Tutor Programme. The funding in question will be shared out based on a schools’ pupil premium allocations.
Further details of the funding practices and approach for the National Tutor Programme and school tutoring programmes will be provided by the Department for Education will be provided shortly.
