Add to calendar

The evidence session is part of the cross-party Committee’s inquiry into the Government’s catch up programme, which has also examined the effectiveness of the National Tutoring Programme run by Randstad and extra funding provided to schools. 

The witnesses are likely to be asked about the Department for Education’s guidance for pupils to wear face coverings, and about whether pupils’ education has been affected by pupil and staff absences due to Covid-19. 

There may be questions about how schools have been able or unable to make use of the National Tutoring Programme.  

The school leaders will also be asked to reflect on what other measures could help children catch up with lost learning, and to help pupils’ mental health and wellbeing.
