Gavin Williamson – 2021 Comments on Catch-Up Education Funding

The comments made by Gavin Williamson, the Secretary of State for Education, on 24 February 2021.

Our package of measures will deliver vital support to the children and young people who need it most, making sure everyone has the same opportunity to fulfil their potential no matter their background.

I know that longer-term support over the length of this parliament will be vital to ensure children make up for lost learning. Our Education Recovery Commissioner, Sir Kevan Collins, will be engaging with teachers, school and college leaders and families over the coming weeks and months to develop our longer term plans.
