What the EEF Says

We've grouped the EEF recommendations into 5 simple categories

"Pupils will need support to transition back to school."

"Setting aside time to enable teachers to assess pupils' wellbeing and learning."

"Subject-specific assessments might be used to identify particular areas."

"Providing pupils with high-quality feedback, building on accurate assessment."

"High-quality one to one and small group tuition."

"Structured interventions, which may also be delivered one to one or in small groups."

"Support in the new school year could focus on providing regular and supportive communications."

"Support can also focus on a wide range of outcomes, such as confidence and wellbeing."

"Ensure that new material being covered builds on secure foundations."

"Providing pupils with high-quality feedback, building on accurate assessment, is likely to be a particularly promising approach."
