Policies and Procedure
Schools should use this funding for specific activities to support their pupils to catch up for lost teaching over the previous months, in line with the guidance on curriculum expectations for the next academic year. Schools have the flexibility to spend their funding in the best way for their cohort and circumstances. The impact of the catch-up funding will be reviewed with the data produced from teacher assessments. These will take place regularly through the academic year and the overall impact will be reviewed summatively at the end of the academic year.
The school will use this funding in the following ways:
A qualified teacher to be employed 2 afternoons each week to work with children in small group booster sessions. This will target children across all year groups, focusing on priority areas of learning informed by teacher assessment and pupil progress reviews.
On return to school in September, as a collective, our children were extremely pleased to be back and their behaviour has been to a high standard. We are aware of individual children whose experiences will need support in school in the coming weeks and months. The school plans to use catch up funding to support training and resources for staff, as well as providing pastoral support for individual pupils (ELSA, counselling etc.).
