Select Committee examines impact of COVID-19 on education and children’s services

The implications of the coronavirus pandemic for the education sector and the impact on children and young people will be examined in a wide-ranging inquiry by the Commons Education Select Committee.

The inquiry will look at how the outbreak of COVID-19 is affecting all aspects of the education sector and children's social care system and will scrutinise how the Department for Education is dealing with the situation.

It will examine both short term impacts, such as the effects of school closures and exam cancellations, as well as longer-term implications particularly for the most vulnerable children.
