What impact will this have?

  • Whether it’s a language barrier, or a lack of resources and support, many of our families have been feeling anxious that they are being left behind during lockdown as they cannot access or keep up with homework.
  • You will be helping to tackle this anxiety and ensure that all children are reaching important educational milestones.
  • This will help to limit the effects of educational inequalities highlighted during this pandemic.
