The Government’s Catch-up programme


The Education Committee is holding an inquiry on the effectiveness of the Government’s catch-up programme.

The pandemic has had a significant impact on all aspects of pupils’ lives. Pupils have lost months of learning, with disadvantaged pupils the worst affected.

To date, the Government has spent around £5 billion on its education recovery programme, through initiatives such as the Recovery Premium and the National Tutoring Programme.

The Committee will scrutinise how effective these catch-up initiatives have been.
