Schools: Davey calls on PM to provide proper catch-up funding

Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey MP has called on the Prime Minister to provide proper funding so that children can catch up on the education they missed during during the pandemic.

Ed Davey said: “Boris Johnson’s refusal to fund his own adviser’s education catch-up plan is a shocking betrayal of our children’s futures.

“As children go back to school, parents are understandably anxious about all the learning they’ve missed out on during Covid.

“Children, parents and teachers have done everything that’s been asked of them during the Covid crisis, but have been let down repeatedly by the appalling failures of Gavin Williamson and this Conservative Government.

“Tory Ministers must listen to what parents are telling them and stump up the cash schools need to make up for the learning all children have lost during the pandemic.”
