On Wednesday 25 January Mulberry Academy Shoreditch Executive Principal, Ruth Holden, gave evidence to the government’s Education Committee. The Committee spoke to a panel of school leaders about the effectiveness of the Government’s education catch-up programme and Covid mitigation measures in schools.

The panel were asked about the Department for Education’s guidance for pupils to wear face coverings, and about whether pupils’ education has been affected by pupil and staff absences due to Covid-19 and also to reflect on what other measures could help children catch up with lost learning, and to help pupils’ mental health and wellbeing.
