The Government have pledged £1 billion (https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-catch-up-premium) to ensure that schools have the resources they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time during school closures and home-learning. It is believed that with extra support for those who need it most all pupils have the chance to catch up. This one-off grant funding will be paid to all state-funded primary, secondary and special schools in the 2020 to 2021 academic year.
Our school will receive £6480 in instalments for catch up Funding – around £80 per pupil. Teachers have identified where our children and school would benefit most from skills and knowledge lost due to school closures and home schooling in order for them to make progress and improve well-being. Emphasis has been given to:
This allocation builds on Pupil Premium Funding each school receives, it helps schools deliver evidence-based approaches for supporting disadvantaged pupils.
Our school received the minimum floor’ payment which ensures no primary school will not receive less than £2,000.
This money is supporting improving basic maths and literacy skills in small groups and enriching life experiences.
School-Led Tutoring is part of the National Tutoring Programme which is a ring-fenced grant to provide tuition for disadvantaged and vulnerable pupils who have missed the most education due to COVID-19. We have received funding of £405 for two pupils which will be supplemented by school to provide small group tuition recommended by the education Endowment Fund Toolkit.
