COVID Catch-up Premium
The government’s COVID Catch-up Premium aims to support children to recover lost ground after school closure periods. In addition to carefully planned lessons in classrooms, and the focus on the learning and personal development of individuals through the work of teachers and LSAs, the school created a plan which ensures that £33,600 Premium money received in 2020-2021 was used effectively.
Aware of the extensive evidence supporting the impact of high quality one to one and small group tuition as a catch-up strategy, we prioritised this for individuals and groups of pupils across the school, focusing on English and maths. All activities were carefully managed and monitored, with pupil progress analysed as appropriate. Focused staff training to improve and extend educational provision and wellbeing support both at the time and in the future was a priority, as was the purchase of resources which would facilitate accelerated learning.

In 2021-2022 we are expecting to receive £2,320. A plan for this will be created with effect from November 2021.
