Written evidence to Education Select Committee Inquiry on Covid – response on education

Reintegration into school after a protracted period of absence can be a real challenge for many young people. Just for Kids Law and CRAE shared our concerns on this in our submission to the Education Select Committee Inquiry on the impact of COVID-19 on education and children’s social care.
