Covid-19 Catch-Up Premium
In June 2020 the government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up on missed learning caused by coronavirus (COVID19). This is especially important for the most vulnerable pupils and pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds who we know have been most affected.
The guidance on the use of funding states that "although all children have had their education disrupted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, it is likely that disadvantaged and vulnerable groups will have been hardest hit".
Each school is responsible for allocating this money in order to meet specific, identified areas for focus - such as those relating to learning, assessment, intervention strategies, resources and pastoral needs, in order to help reduce the impact of Covid-19 on children's learning.
As such, every school leadership team has implemented a plan to show how this funding is being spent, the reasons for these decisions and the intended impact. This plan will be found on the school's website. School Standards Boards and the GLF Trust will review each school's expenditure in order to oversee reporting on impact.
For more information on our Catch Up Funding plan and how the school has responded to wider Covid-19 situation, please see the documents below.
