At Prime Minister’s Questions I challenged Boris Johnson on support for young people. Children’s education and wellbeing has really suffered during the pandemic.
You can watch my question here.
We’ve got a big challenge to support their recovery.
Today the Government announced catch up funding that amounts to just 43p per pupil per day. This is appalling.
We went into this pandemic with rising child poverty, a widening attainment gap and school funding lower in real terms that it was in 2010. This isn’t the fault of a virus, it’s the fault of the Conservative Party.
