The Sutton Trust has submitted its representation to the 2021 Comprehensive Spending Review.
This Spending Review presents an important opportunity to support children and young people to recover from the impacts of the pandemic, and to address long-term issues in education.
In its representation, the Trust calls for:
- An extension of eligibility for the 30 hours childcare entitlement, with an increase in the hourly rate for providers.
- An increase in the Early Years Pupil Premium to bring it into line with the per-hour rate for primary school pupils.
- The introduction of a Leadership Quality Fund to improve quality and qualifications of the early years workforce.
- A recovery premium for schools and colleges to spend on evidence-based interventions to support students to recover from the pandemic.
- The introduction of a pupil premium for young people aged 16-19 to provide targeted support in the wake of the pandemic.
