Education Policy Institute’s proposals for a school “Catch Up Plan” – Margaret Greenwood

Margaret Greenwood MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Schools, commenting on the Education Policy Institute’s proposals for a school “Catch Up Plan” to prevent disadvantaged pupils falling further behind during the pandemic, said:

“Labour welcomes this serious and important report from the Education Policy Institute.

“After 10 years of Conservative austerity, child poverty is driving educational inequality in our schools.

“The government needs to give serious consideration to recommendations in this report if these inequalities are not to widen and deepen.”
