Covid Catch Up Premium
As a result of the Covid19 pandemic and subsequent closure of schools, the Government issued an amount of catch-up funding to all schools to support with closing identified gaps in learning as a result of the pandemic. The amount of funding allocated is based on pupil numbers and is paid over two financial years.
We used the government recommended ‘Covid-19 Support Guide for Schools’ published by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) to identify the most effective strategies to ensure that our decisions for allocating and spending the funding were based on evidence-based research thus ensuring the best possible outcomes for pupils. Our strageies below outline in further detail how we allocated the additional funds.
