Covid Catch up premium
The government announced in September 2020 that all schools would receive an additional allocation of money to be spent on activities to support children's learning as a result of school closures during the pandemic.
As a school we have chosen to spend the money on high quality resources that can continue to be used once the pandemic is over as we predict that the effects of children missing schooling during lockdown will be far reaching and will come to light more over the next year.
So far money has been allocated to:
-maths games and developing a maths lending library to support children during periods of remote learning and with in-class catch up support
-high quality KS1 phonics books aimed at phases 2 and 3 where we predict children will have struggled the most with online learning
-high quality schemed books for KS2 children who need additional support with their reading fluencey and comprehension
-ActiveALL PE wall mounts to support childrens gross motor skills which we know have been affected during extended lockdowns.
-Additional funding will also be spent on staff training to deliver high quality interventions that will further support children to catch up with core areas of their learning across the school.
A more specific breakdown of funds used can be given by written request to the school.
