UK to Offer Catch-Up Classes for Children This Summer of 2021

About three quarters of secondary schools in UK are providing catch-up classes for children this summer to deal with the problem caused by millions fo children missing school since March last year. The Department for Education (DfE) is implementing £200m scheme to provide a mixture of academic and extra-curricular activities for students before the start of the new academic year in September. Nick Gibb, the schools minister said: “We have invested £3bn so far in helping children catch up ahead of the next academic year and summer schools are an integral part of the overall effort to recover from the disruption caused by the pandemic.” The DfE said schools are expected to target their programmes at children most in need of catch-up, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds or entitled to free school meals.
