Children have returned to school, but while there are plans in place to help them catch up on their education, the Government isn’t giving their well-being the focus it deserves.
This pandemic has meant more than a lost education. Children have missed out on friendships, play and being a child and their well-being has suffered as a result.
The resignation of Sir Kevan Collins, the education recovery commissioner for England, makes it clear that children’s education and well-being is not being given the attention – and investment – that it deserves.
Now is the time to ensure that improving children’s well-being is at the heart of the Government’s recovery plans. It’s time to fight back for children.
Ask your MP to call on the Government to put children’s well-being, and their future, first.
