Covid-19 Catch Up funding
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.
Funding is £80 per pupil (based on 96 pupils = £7680).
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.
Based on Term1 2020 assessments, the school has identified reading as a key area for improvement. The school will be using catch up funding to invest in new reading resources, to support teaching and learning.
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.).
