What impact is lock down having on schools?

UNIVERSITY NEWS LAST UPDATED : 30 APRIL 2020

Centre for Brexit Studies Researcher David Hearne has shared his thoughts and views on coronavirus (COVID-19) and the impact the ongoing crisis and lockdown is having on schools across the UK.

In a video shared today, the expert discussed the impact that the lockdown measures could be having on poorer pupils and those who live in deprived areas and if this time away from the classroom could have an effect on their futures. David also discussed what age range of pupils we can expect to return to school first, and if there is a chance of pupils having to resit months of schooling unless extra tuition is offered to them.

He also discussed if pupils having to resit could have a knock on effect to universities in the UK and Apprenticeship programmes. He also looks into the five steps and measures the UK will need to accomplish before lockdown is lifted.
