Schools may be forced to introduce weekend lessons, drop non-core subjects, return to a pre-lockdown curriculum and overspend their budgets to hire extra staff in order to help pupils who have struggled academically throughout lockdown, headteachers have warned.The attainment gap between socio-economically disadvantaged pupils and their more affluent peers has widened considerably as a result of school closures due to the coronavirus pandemic, according to education charities.The government has announced a £1bn “catch-up plan” to help these pupils who have fallen behind, including a £350m National Tutoring Programme to subsidise tutoring by up to 75%.But early years providers and colleges for 16- to 19-year-olds are not included in the plans, and the programme is not expected to offer tutoring to pupils until November – giving disadvantaged pupils two extra months where they could potentially fall even further behind their classmates. For the first time in her 22-year career in education, Katrina Morley, CEO of Tees Valley Education, has overspent on all of her budgets to hire additional staff to prepare for next week’s reopening.As the head of a multi-academy trust made up of five primary academies across Middlesbrough and Redcar and Cleveland, Morley works with some of the most impoverished communities in the UK; one of her schools is in the bottom 1% in terms of deprivation.Her children have not only faced digital poverty – she estimates about 80% of them do not have access to a laptop or computer – but some have not had food on the table, or electricity and gas. “We have needed to provide pencils and pens, things most of us would have in our homes. My pupils have suffered – and not just academically,” she told HuffPost UK.She describes her schools as a “motorway” made up of three tiers: the general day-to-day leaning in any school, a second tier of “profound disadvantage” where deprived children are denied access through genuine poverty; and now the catch-up from Covid-19. And she estimates it could take up to two years for students just to catch up on the last six months.My pupils have suffered – and not just academicallyIn order to cope with this additional tier, she has hired extra teachers on two-year contracts, trained specialists in special education needs, as well as psychologists and a trauma counsellor. Her schools will be offering after-school lessons, breakfast clubs, as well as smaller group work to ensure a smaller pupil-to-adult ratio.“My staff are amazing and they’re used to working hard to try and level the playing field for children who are significantly disadvantaged, but they can’t give much more than they already have so we’ve got additional staffing.“I’ve overspent on all of my budgets and explained to the Department of Education that as far as I’m concerned, these are about my children’s life chances and I’m not going to be the one that says no to them. How dare any one of us not give them what they’re absolutely entitled to in 2020 when they’ve already got enough barriers in their lives?”In addition to hiring extra staff, her academies may choose to reset their curriculum back to pre-lockdown days. “We can’t just suddenly move everyone up to a Year 6 if they didn’t finish the whole of Year 5,” she continued.“We need to assess where our children are now in comparison to where they were in March, so we can understand the gaps to find out who has seen some regression or whose progression has stood still. That way we can decide if we need to go back a little in order to reactivate some prior knowledge, in order to come forward again.”Sarah Holmes-Carne, principal at Kenton School in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, said her academy was also planning to introduce weekend and after-school sessions for her new Year 11 students due to take their GCSEs next summer.“We’re recalibrating our plans for the coming year, but it’s important to get the balance right,” she told HuffPost UK. “We don’t want to inundate our children with too much because everyone will just be exhausted and stressed.“We need to make sure we’ve identified the gaps and work on those deficits, so the extra lessons would be personalised to individual learners or groups and not a one-size-fits-all situation.”Her school has tried to keep a close eye on its pupils in an attempt to keep everyone up to speed. “We had weekly phone calls and structured home visits and were able to monitor who was accessing home learning and who wasn’t. Not every child has access to the internet and a laptop at home, so we made sure to have paper copies of everything.”We don’t want to inundate our children with too much because everyone will just be exhausted and stressed.When her pupils return to school next week, they will find their timetable has been changed so they will start each day with their tutor. “Nobody knows how children are going to be like after Covid-19, but by making sure they spend the first 30 minutes each day with a person that knows them well, we can make sure their emotional well-being is identified and supported.”But Holmes-Carne is reluctant to change her school’s curriculum for now. “It’s still too early to know – we need guidance from a national level because we don’t want to be in a position where we’ve changed something too hastily that could put our children at a disadvantage compared to their peers.”While the government’s £350m National Tutoring Programme has been positively received by heads of schools, education charity The Access Project is calling for the plan to be extended to Year 12 and 13 pupils.“There is no obvious reason the government has chosen to exclude them,” said the charity’s CEO, Nathan Sansom. “In fact, it’s even more important that A-level students are given access to this programme because there’s a really big step up from GCSEs to A-levels.”The exams fiasco has also led to universities deferring some of this year’s places. “Sadly that means it’s going to be even more difficult for disadvantaged students to get into university next year because they are effectively fighting over a smaller number of places. It’s therefore even more important the support goes in for disadvantaged students who will be sitting their A-levels in 2021,” he added.  Although his Year 10 to 13 students were able to attend some classes in person in June and July and as such are “in a reasonably good position”, UTC South Durham’s principal Tom Dower said he was still concerned about the potential attainment gap in his classrooms next week.It would be a really foolish mistake for students to have a full-on exam season.“We’ve had lots of communication with families,” he told HuffPost UK. “Some students have not been making much progress in their development generally, and others have because of the opportunities available to them.“Some students have had real problems with a lack of technology. We have one boy who is one of eight children in the family, so finding space to be able to work and think is really difficult – there are plenty of examples of those.”As the head of a college for 14- to 19-year-olds, Dower is particularly concerned about how this gap will affect pupils due to take their GCSEs or A-levels next summer. He believes the government’s plan to run exams as normal is “really foolish mistake” that could have a “detrimental” impact on pupils’ development and “put unfair pressure on students as well as staff”.In order to cope with a full-on exam season, his pupils will “sadly” drop poetry from their English syllabus and many are expected to reduce the number of GCSEs from the usual nine or 10. “Poetry absolutely needs to be part of a child’s education, but we’re trying to just remove part of the content.” He said many other schools would also be forced to drop subjects such as art and revert to only a few subjects as a result.“We need to take a deep breath and move intelligently towards a system that is actually fair to everybody. Exams can be important for some knowledge-based testing, but all students should produce some coursework elements and teacher assessment has a really important place as well.”Although his teachers will most likely work have to work overtime, because his pupils already study for 31 hours a week (compared with the average 25 hours in most schools), no extra after-school tutoring has been planned.And while the school heads and education experts who spoke to HuffPost UK were divided over the methods they plan to carry out to rescue disadvantaged pupils from the attainment gap, they were unanimous in saying it was crucial for these students to safely return to their classroom as soon as possible. “It’s so important that everything is done to get schools and pupils back in September,” Action Tutoring’s CEO, Susannah Hardyman, said. “If pupils miss any more learning time, the damage will be absolutely huge – not just to their learning but also to their social, emotional and mental health.” Related...

From Brexit to a global pandemic and the rebirth of a civil rights movement, Boris Johnson’s first year as prime minister has been uniquely tumultuous. And it has coincided with a series of events that exposed just how the deep the lines of racial injustice lie across the country. Simon Woolley, founder of Operation Black Vote, told HuffPost UK: “Historians will look at back on 2020 and ask but one question: how did our national leader react to this perfect storm that laid bare deep-seated racial inequalities as never before?“The devastating impact that Covid-19 has had on BAME communities, along with the death of George Floyd and Black Lives Matter, demands our prime minister lay out a race equality strategy now.”Before taking office, Johnson already had a worrying track record on race, referring to Black people as “piccaninnies” with “watermelon smiles”. Prior to last year’s general election, many Black people told HuffPost UK they were fearful about Johnson re-entering Number 10.A year on, what do they make of his time in office so far? These are the key moments that show how Boris Johnson has responded to major tests in race relations. ‘Perilous for ethnic minorities’“Boris Johnson cannot deny that he has presided over a period where the denial of the existence of stark, overt racism in the NHS has cost lives of people who are simply working to support those who are sick and vulnerable.“These are the words of a senior NHS manager, who has asked to remain anonymous. “The lack of PPE and the sacrifice of [Black, Asian and minority ethnic] staff in the Covid-19 pandemic will forever characterise the reign of Boris Johnson and evidence that he and the government – which has led us on a merry dance of death – have blood on their hands.“If the racial inequalities [in society] that were known about had been addressed, then the disproportionate impact would not have been so stark.”There have so far been more than 56,000 deaths registered in the UK where Covid-19 is mentioned on the death certificate.NHS England data for the first 12,600 deaths from the virus revealed that Black people were dying from the virus at almost twice the rate of their proportion of the population.Following public pressure, the government eventually asked Public Health England (PHE) to conduct in a review into the disparities of risks and outcomes of Covid-19.Former equalities chief Trevor Phillips was appointed to assist with this review, sparking widespread criticism from BAME communities – many branded the move “shameful” and “alarming” given Phillips’ suspension from the Labour Party over Islamophobia allegations and previous offensive comments on race.Phillips and Professor Richard Webber – who together run specialist research company Webber Phillips – were asked by Public Health England (PHE) to provide expert support to an inquiry into why such high numbers of victims of the coronavirus pandemic were from BAME backgrounds.When the review was eventually published in June, it simply confirmed what many had known for weeks prior: Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) people are more likely to die of coronavirus than their white counterparts.The data was published late with ministers under pressure amid reports it was delayed due to the Black Lives Matter protests.People in deprived areas “may” be more at risk of infection because they live closer together, or because they live in places that contain a higher proportion of workers in jobs more likely to be exposed to the virus, the report said.Indeed, public sector staff such as bus drivers and NHS workers – many of whom are from BAME communities – told HuffPost UK that felt disregarded as UK authorities battled to contain the Covid-19 outbreak, as they were forced to work without adequate PPE.Windrush generation nurses also gave their opinion on being asked to fight the battle against Covid-19 after the travesty of the scandal.More than half of pregnant women who were admitted to hospital with coronavirus in the UK were from a Black and minority ethnic background, prompting campaigners to demand greater protection for pregnant mothers from these communities.Reflecting on the past year of Johnson’s government, Nels Abbey – author ofThink Like A White Man: A Satirical Guide to Conquering The World...While Black – told HuffPost UK: “The first year of Boris Johnson’s leadership has proven perilous for ethnic minorities, especially Black people. And sadly, given Johnson’s highly successful – and largely unchallenged – relationship with racism, things are not going to change any time soon.“His response to ethnic minorities dying in disproportionate numbers from Covid-19? Appoint a despised, discredited and unqualified, yet ideologically compliant, Black man to lead the review.“His response to the murder of George Floyd? Exactly the same as his response to Covid-19.”Abbey said that, in his opinion: “From journalist to editor, mayor of London to leading Brexiteer, to foreign secretary to prime minister, racism has served as the oxygen of Boris Johnson’s career. Without it he would not be where he is now.”He added: “From the moment he announced his candidacy he went straight for the racism card. In his first campaign video, he proactively offered a white male he is speaking to on the doorstep ‘more stop and search’. The dog whistle was heard loud and clear.” New race commissionFollowing the death of George Floyd, a Black man who was murdered by US police, a wave of Black Lives Matter protests took place in London across July.These demonstrations were in solidarity with the US, and also called for systemic racism to be tackled in Britain.In response, the government announced it would form an independent Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities.Munira Mirza, the current head of the No.10 policy unit, led the commission’s formation.This sparked concern in light of the fact Mirza had previously cast doubt on the existence of institutional racism and condemned previous inquiries for fostering a “culture of grievance”.Yesterday I chaired the first meeting of our new Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities. Thank you to all the members - I hope this will really make the difference that we need right now. pic.twitter.com/aQ20l97sMT— Boris Johnson #StayAlert (@BorisJohnson) July 22, 2020The commission will aim to report its findings on the priority areas of health, education, criminal justice and employment by the end of this year.Some have questioned how this commission differs from the Race Disparity Unit, established by Theresa May in 2017 to tackle systemic inequalities in BritainHuffPost UK has sought clarification from Downing Street but has not received a response.Johnson chaired the commission’s first meeting on Monday, where he said: “We cannot go on like this. We do need to make progress. [...] There’s an alternative story to be told – there’s an alternative narrative about success, achievement, championing lots of positive things that needs to be told in addition to some of the obstacles that unquestionably exist.”The commission will be chaired by Dr Tony Sewell, an international education consultant who is head of the charity Generating Genius. It works to ensure talented students from disadvantaged and diverse ethnic backgrounds are positioned to excel in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) careers.Sewell, who worked with the prime minister in 2013 when he was mayor of London, has previously described any evidence of institutional racism as “flimsy” – and concerns have been raised regarding his suitability for the role. In an interview with The Times newspaper last year, the former teacher suggested the root cause of knife crime and gang culture among Black youths was absent fathers, citing figures showing about 50% of Black children grow up without a father. Some fun facts about Tony Sewell who will be heading the govt's race disparity commission: Sewell believes that black single mothers don't have the "strong arm" to raise boys; school lessons are too "feminised" for boys and African-caribbean "youth culture" is "anti-intellectual" https://t.co/XWQHSoIdyX— Dr Zubaida Haque (@Zubhaque) July 16, 2020Responding to Sewell’s appointment, Dr Zubaida Haque, interim director of the Runnymede Trust, tweeted a 2019 clip of Sewell appearing on Channel 5 News.Sewell will be joined by nine others in the group, comprised of representatives from the fields of science, education, broadcasting, economics, medicine, policing and community organising. They will look to deliver a report on race disparity within the health, education, criminal justice and employment sectors by the end of this year.This includes equalities minister Kemi Badenoch, who recently rejected claims “systemic injustice” is the reason ethnic minorities are more likely to die from coronavirus in England – sparking criticism when findings of the PHE review appear to suggest otherwise.These have prompted doubts around her role, too, in the government’s new race commission. HuffPost UK has put these concerns to Downing Street but has not received a reply.National lockdownBlack and Asian people were disproportionately fined under the Coronavirus Act, HuffPost UK revealed in May.Out of 13,445 contraventions where the individual issued with the notice had a self-identified ethnicity recorded, 5% of recipients issued with fines were Black, according to National Police Chiefs’ Council data. Black people only account for 3% of the England and Wales population.Analysis by the Guardian last month confirmed Metropolitan Police officers enforcing the coronavirus lockdown were more than twice as likely to issue fines to Black people as white people.This renewed concerns about the Black people being over-policed in the UK yet under-protected from the pandemic.Meanwhile, researchers found BAME people in Britain had been hit harder by job losses during the coronavirus crisis than the population as a whole, Reuters reported. And data from the Fawcett Society and West Midlands Women’s Voice found BAME women in the West Midlands and Greater Manchester were more likely than white women to have taken a pay cut because of the pandemic.As of July 19, 2020, approximately 9.5m jobs, from 1.2m different employers were furloughed in the UK as part of the government’s job retention scheme.The scheme, introduced in response to the economic damage caused by the coronavirus pandemic, covers 80% of an employee’s usual monthly wage, up to £2,500 a month.In a column for The Voice newspaper, broadcaster Dotun Adebayo wrote: “When the furlough scheme ends, it will be black workers that will suffer the most.” Angela Phillips, a Black woman who worked in the media on a fixed term contract, was furloughed in May before being dismissed four weeks ago – just prior to easing of the lockdown.Reflecting on Johnson’s first year, she told HuffPost UK: “I believe Boris Johnson has bumbled his way through his first year and all the credit for recent measures of support should go to Rishi Sunak. “His bumbling on Brexit, his refusal to bend the knee in support of Black lives when he is known for his clapping for the NHS and other gestures [...] plus his flip-flopping and stuttering are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to assessing Boris Johnson.”Public sector workers on the front line of dealing with the coronavirus pandemic will be given a pay rise, the chancellor announced this week.Doctors, teachers and police officers are among those who will see extra money in their pay packet after a testing few months since Covid-19 hit the UK.But social care workers, who have also been at the forefront of the battle at the deadly virus, are not part of the group being given an increased wage.Woolley of Operation Black Vote is calling upon the PM to prioritise tackling race inequalities. “Implementing the recommendations from previous race reviews is the lowest hanging fruit,” he said. “Having a strategic plan that ensures BAME communities do not have another hit as we enter an unprecedented economic downturn is the role of our leader, the prime minister Boris Johnson.”Angelo Irving, a London-based comedian, portrays a Black version of Boris Johnson in popular online sketches as means of raising awareness around sociopolitical concerns through satire.  A #metpolice officer caught kneeling on a black man's neck? #BlackBoris speaks about his superb relationship with the BAMEs. #BlackLivesMatterpic.twitter.com/y5Lkk0k4dU— Black Boris (@Angelo3000k) July 18, 2020Reflecting on Johnson’s year, he expressed disappointment.“By any objective measure, Johnson’s tenure has been a failure. He is the exact wrong prime minister for this moment. The things that he is good at – soundbites, bluster, ingratiating himself and presenting himself as a loveable buffoon to conceal the nastiness underneath – are absolutely not enough to meet the moment that we are in. “Where he would normally be just a bad premier like the two previous ones, his premiership has been singularly awful for ethnic minorities. In my opinion, his defence of his adviser Dominic Cummings broke this country, which had followed the rules and saw them flagrantly flouted by someone who had drawn them up.“Johnson has been a failure and no soundbite or sycophantic cheering by Tory MPs at PMQs will change that. His government has been awful when it comes to acknowledging, let alone tackling, racial inequalities in 2020. “The fact that the report had to be leaked before it was released and that there are claims that a section of that report said that discrimination played a part in the increased number of deaths ‘did not survive contact with Matt Hancock’s office’ all serves to paint a picture of a government that wants to do the minimum when it comes to tackling racial inequality.“This has also been seen with government responses to #BlackLivesMatter. Whether it was the painful interview with Matt Hancock on Sky – where, when asked how many Black members Boris Johnson had in his cabinet, he talked of ‘diversity’ and ‘BAME’ as a feeble attempt to deflect from the truth – or Johnson’s speech where he acknowledged the ‘incontrovertible, undeniable feeling of injustice’, whilst at the same time praising peaceful protest but threatening those that protested in a violent way, it is clear again that Johnson doesn’t have the desire for any real change. “Johnson claims that we are right to say that Black lives matter, but says nothing about the fact that between March and May during lockdown a quarter of all black males aged 15 to 24 were stopped and searched in London.“Covid has served to shine a light on the inequalities in the health system, policing and race relations. Johnson’s peculiar habit of leading from the back, in particular leaking policy days before announcing it, has led to a confusion on the rules and a leadership vacuum.“He is a failure for the whole country and a ruinous failure for ethnic minorities. I shudder at the thought of four more years of this. As to the new race commission, it is amazing how often they find black faces that will sit comfortably within their ideological sphere.”WindrushOf course, one of the greatest stains on the Conservative’s government’s conscience is the anguish caused by the Windrush scandal.Paulette Wilson, a Windrush campaigner who was left destitute while fighting for her rights as a British citizen, died unexpectedly age 64 on Thursday, sparking grief and renewed anger at the injustices that she – and others – faced.Wilson, a former chef, died while still selflessly campaigning for justice for Windrush victims.It emerged in July that the government had asked victims to prove their case “beyond reasonable doubt” before being given compensation.It is the same level of proof required to convict defendants in criminal courts across the UK. Immigration lawyer Jacqueline McKenzie told HuffPost UK that as compensation claims are civil cases, the burden of proof should be “on the balance of probabilities”.The compensation scheme has been criticised over its slow progress in offering payouts to those wrongly told they no longer had a right to be in the UK. At least 83 victims with the right to live in the country have been deported.By the end of March, 1,275 people had applied under the scheme. But to date, just 60 people have received compensation through the scheme, which was launched more than a year ago, with £362,996 paid out to them. Some estimates suggest the total fund could be between £200m and £500m.A Downing Street spokesperson told HuffPost UK: “The prime minister is proud to lead the most diverse ministerial team in this country’s history. He campaigned on a commitment to level up across the nation and has repeatedly made clear that there is no place for racism in our country.“The government continues to take action to address the disparities that exist across society, including implementing recommendations from reviews that we have agreed to take forward.”Related...

Tony Sewell has been confirmed by the government as the chair of the newly-established Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities.Boris Johnson announced the establishment of the commission after a series of anti-racism protests on British streets triggered by the US police killing of George Floyd while in custody.Sewell will be joined by nine others in the group, comprised of representatives from the fields of science, education, broadcasting, economics, medicine, policing and community organising. They will look to deliver a report on race disparity within the health, education, criminal justice and employment sectors by the end of this year.But the new head of the commission has faced criticism for his views in the past, describing any evidence of institutional racism as “flimsy”, and concerns have already been raised regarding his suitability for the role. Who is Tony Sewell?A former teacher and international education consultant, Sewell had previously worked with Boris Johnson in 2013 when he led the then-London mayor’s education inquiry into the city’s schools, which resulted in the creation of the London schools excellence fund.He is currently head of education charity Generating Genius, which works with children from Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) communities to prepare them for careers and university study in science and technology. He has also been a board member for both the Science Museum and the Youth Justice Board, a fellow at University College London, and sat on the Windrush working group.Alongside his work in education, Sewell has worked as a columnist and author.His writing and speaking engagements have long focused on issues of race and education, with some of his published views attracting controversy. Why is his appointment controversial? Writing in Prospect magazine in 2010, Sewell said: “Much of the supposed evidence of institutional racism is flimsy.”In an interview with the Times newspaper last year, the former teacher suggested that the root cause of knife crime and gang culture among Black youths was absent fathers, citing figures showing that about 50% of Black children grow up without a father.“People often say I’m ‘brave’ to say that. It’s so patronising,” he told the paper.Concerns have been raised about his views in the wake of the news of his appointment, with Suresh Grover – a campaigner who heads up the Monitoring Group, which helps victims of racial violence – telling The Guardian: “The appointment of Tony Sewell as the chair of the government’s new commission on race disparity confirms a widely held view within the UK’s BAME communities that its establishment is simply paying lip service to [the] deeply entrenched systemic problem of racism that exists within state institutions.“It can now be regarded as a deeply hurtful and cynical exercise that has buried all hope for any meaningful and positive change for race relations in the UK.”A spokesperson of the Muslim Council of Britain published a statement after Sewell’s appointment was made public, writing: “The composition of this commission tells us that the government intends to row back work done by previous governments to tackle racial disparities.”STATEMENT | MCB Responds to Appointment of Dr Tony Sewell to Chair Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities | 16 July 2020 pic.twitter.com/YpRlCHFreI— MCB (@MuslimCouncil) July 16, 2020Meanwhile Dr Zubaida Haque, interim director of the Runnymede Trust, tweeted a 2019 clip of Sewell appearing on Channel 5 News, adding: “Some fun facts about Tony Sewell who will be heading the governments race disparity commission: Sewell believes that Black single mothers don’t have the ‘strong arm’ to raise boys; school lessons are too ‘feminised’ for boys and African-Caribbean ‘youth culture’ is ‘anti-intellectual.’”Some fun facts about Tony Sewell who will be heading the govt's race disparity commission: Sewell believes that black single mothers don't have the "strong arm" to raise boys; school lessons are too "feminised" for boys and African-caribbean "youth culture" is "anti-intellectual" https://t.co/XWQHSoIdyX— Dr Zubaida Haque (@Zubhaque) July 16, 2020BBC saying education charity boss Tony Sewell will head government's race commission.

Companies that make a living selling bombs at least on the side are the target of an investigation by the Campaign Against Arms Trade, which says the likes of BAE, Raytheon and Thales are sponsoring learning sessions for primary school children in what would appear to be an attempt to groom kids for careers as warhead assemblers.It's all about encouraging the push to get Brit kids into the science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) career elevator say the companies involved, although the CAAT says it's actually little more than a PR effort to "normalise" the war industry and get the brand names of weapons manufacturers into the public consciousness at an early age, just in case one of the kids grows up to become defence secretary and can therefore push a few billion pounds worth of sales in their direction, because it looks like Eurasia is beating Eastasia and we need to balance it out.The CAAT's Andrew Smith said: "Many of these companies have profited from war and fuelled atrocities around the world.Schools are vital to our society and should never be used as commercial vehicles for arms companies.It is time for arms companies to be kicked out of the classroom."BAE's child-friendly science roadshow team comes in for particular criticism, although with only 491 followers to its name it can't have indoctrinated many youngsters through the STEM backdoor and into the ways of automated remote killing.
