COVID-19 Catch-up Premium

COVID-19 Catch-Up Premium details

How the grant will be spent:

  • A trained teacher will be employed in spring term for ½ day per week to release specialists to deliver specific targeted support.
  • Providing specific resources to support catch-up during quality first teaching in regular curriculum time.
  • Further Mental First Aiders will be trained and will support children’s mental wellbeing to support their learning and thus catch up.

Priority areas for catch-up funding:

  • Phonics catch up interventions for children in years 1, 2, 3 and 4.
  • Basic mathematics calculation catch up interventions for children in years 5-6.
  • Reading and Writing interventions across years 5-6.

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

  • Children will be individually monitored and tracked throughout the catch-up period to make sure they are back on track by the end of the academic year to where they were before lockdown.
  • Children will receive interventions in-line with their TA.
  • School Data will be assessed against National Average (NA) to make sure that we are aiming for 10%+ above NA.
