Action is needed to ensure children who are falling behind in lessons due to the coronavirus
pandemic can get access to laptops, a South Yorkshire MP has said.


All primary and secondary schools are closed to pupils, except for vulnerable children and
the children of key workers, for the next six weeks and teaching is meant to continue
remotely.


But more than a million school children in the UK still lack access to a computer at home,
research suggests.


Meanwhile, almost two million are unable to go online at home, according to digital
education charity, the E-Learning Foundation.


Sheffield Labour MP Louise Haigh said: "We know at least 5,000 children across Sheffield
don't have access to devices at home which allow them to participate in remote education.


"In the last national lockdown, we saw far too many children not having access to
education and so for the first time in years the attainment gap between the most and least
deprived widened."


Meanwhile, the BBC is changing its schedule on CBBC, devoting three hours every morning
to primary school programmes from next week.


BBC Two will also run programmes to support secondary pupils, it's been confirmed.
