I have today asked the Education Secretary to review the university application of Scunthorpe resident Hannah Moat in Parliament. Hannah is an elite athlete that was due to study at Loughborough University, but her place was rejected due to a clerical error that her school made when inputting her centre-assessed grade.
Having lobbied the government heavily on this matter I am pleased that the government has announced plans to set up a "Covid Summer Food Fund" to provide food vouchers covering the six-week holiday period.
Please find below the Education Secretary's letter to MPs.
Update 02/07/2020: The Education Secretary has today released guidance on what schools will look like upon the return of ALL YEARS in September. Please CLICK HERE for the government's plan to get all pupils back in the classroom.
