NEW - Impact of COVID on Learning

New report: The impact of COVID-19 on learning: A review of the evidence


The proportion of four and five-year-olds reaching expected levels of development dropped from 72% in 2019 to 59% in 2021, according to new research released this week by The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF).

The report, published alongside a practical recovery guide for schools, highlights the growth of the attainment gap between disadvantaged and their peers across all ages and the wider impact of the pandemic on the mental health of pupils and those with SEND.
