New major package to support online learning

on . .

The Education Secretary announces that vulnerable and disadvantaged young people across the country will receive free laptops.

The package also includes 4G routers for disadvantaged secondary school pupils and major telecommunications providers will make it easier for families to access selected educational resources by temporarily exempting these sites from data charges.

Oak Academy joins a broad range of support and resources available for schools and parents. This includes a list of high quality resources recently published by the Government, as well as the existing tools and resources schools use to provide remote education. Many suppliers are making resources, both online and hard-copy, available to schools for free.

This week (Monday 20 April) the BBC is launching its own education package across TV and online, featuring celebrities and some of the best teachers.
