During the Covid-19 pandemic, the very youngest pupils in schools had their schooling and social interactions in the classroom disrupted by lengthy periods of school closures and remote learning. Our research focuses particularly on these young pupils, and is exploring how their learning and social skills are recovering two years on from the pandemic. We first collected data about the pupils when they were in Years 1 and 2 in the academic year 2020/21.
The summary for school leaders and teachers below, follows the pupils into Years 2 and 3 in the academic year 2021/22. We also provide links to the full research report from 2021/22, as well as to the research outputs from the previous year of the study (2020/21).
