The Coronavirus pandemic has exposed a crisis in our schools
9% of all children don’t have access to a laptop, desktop or tablet to learn from home. 880,000 children live in homes without wifi (Ofcom, 2020).
Those who have access to a computer have a significant advantage over those who don't. The closure of schools has exacerbated pre-existing inequalities, widening the attainment gap for disadvantaged young people.
