Covid-19 and Disadvantage Gaps in England 2020 Report Published

the Education Policy Institute has published a report on the disadvantage gap in education. The report examines the gap in 2020 at a national level, across different regions and local authorities, among varying levels of disadvantage, at key stage four and five. The study finds that the gap in GCSE grades between students in long-term poverty and their better off peers has failed to improve over the last ten years, and that more students have now fallen into longer-term poverty. It also finds that A level students gained a whole grade more from teacher assessments than those who studied qualifications such as BTECs. Two infographics published alongside the report, display some of the key headline findings and more detailed findings from the report.
