The country’s poorest children have always had to work harder to keep up at school. COVID-19 makes it much worse.
Many will struggle to learn at home – no internet, no printers, no laptops. Their families are likely to fall even deeper into hardship. The result? The gap between rich and poor will widen even more, risking children's futures – and our society’s.
At Teach First we've always trained and supported great teachers and leaders to help schools thrive against the greatest challenges. Now they're facing their biggest challenge of all.
We’re in awe of the work teachers and schools are already doing to protect some of the country’s most vulnerable children. But they need your support. Together, we can stop these pupils from being shut out – now, and for the rest of their lives.
