New major package to support online learning

The Education Secretary has announced that vulnerable and disadvantaged young people across the country will receive free laptops.

Disadvantaged children and youg people across England are set to receive laptops and tablets as part of a push to make remote education accessible for pupils staying at home during the coronavirus outbreak. Devices will be ordered for those in the most vital stages of their education, those who receive support from a social worker and care leavers.

The government will also provide 4G routers to make sure disadvantaged secondary school pupils and care leavers can access the internet, where those families do not already have mobile or broadband internet in the household.

In addition, to support the work of schools in delivering remote education, the Oak National Academy was launched on the 20th of April. This brand-new enterprise has been created by 40 teachers from some of the leading schools across England, backed by government grant funding. It will provide 180 video lessons each week, across a broad range of subjects from maths to art to languages, for every year group from Reception through to Year 10.
