Coronavirus Catch Up Premium

The government has given schools Coronavirus Catch Up Premium Funding to support pupils who have fallen behind in the pandemic. Full details of the DFE funding can be found here. 

We are required to publish on our website the following information in relation to the funding:

How it is intended that the grant will be spent?

  • Additional TA support to increase in class support and interventions in all year groups. Will also sustain teaching when staffing difficulties due to covid present.
  • CGP books for children Yrs R-6. Should 2 week isolation or full lockdown take place, teachers can assign pages for English and Maths from here. This enables all pupils to have access to materials regardless of how much IT access they have or printer ink – both issues raised in last lockdown.

How the effect of this expenditure on the educational attainment of those pupils at the school will be assessed?

  • In class formative assessment
  • Gap analysis information from start of T2 as to priority needs and feed this into planning.
  • Mid Year data analysis
  • End of year assessments.
