Allocation of £60 million for education recovery in 2020-2022

We have provided additional funding may be used flexibly by local authorities for the following purposes:

  • To employ a variety of school staff to meet the needs of children and young people in their local areas and ensure that levels of teaching and support staff in schools can be maintained in the 2021-22 academic year. This may include, for example, teachers, classroom support staff, facilities management staff, staff to support any wider rollout of testing initiatives to  promote safety in school, and administrative staff.
  • To employ early years practitioners to support the transition from ELC to primary school by, for example, embedding play-based pedagogy in early primary, supporting information sharing and organising transition activities.
