COVID CATCH UP FUNDING
The government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up lost time after school closure. This is especially important for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds. This funding includes:
A one-off universal £650 million catch up premium for 2020 to 2021 academic year to ensure that schools have the support they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time
A £350 million National Tutoring Programme to provide additional, targeted support for those children and young people who need the most help, which includes:
A schools programme for 5-16 year olds
A 16-19 tuition fund
An oral language intervention programme for reception aged children
Our allocation for 2020 -2021 is £9440
The DFE and EEF (Education Endowment Fund) state ‘Every school will have been affected by Covid-19 differently and school leaders are best placed to understand the needs of their school communities. The right way to support pupils will differ between schools and must be informed by the professional judgement of teachers and school leaders’.
This is an organic document which will be reviewed regularly and changed according to the needs of our children and community although it will remain true to the principle that we will seek to reduce the lasting impact of Covid-19 on the education and experiences of our children.
School has created this plan after consultation with parents, staff and children an ongoing identification of needs. School has committed to more ‘catch-up’ funding than has been allocated. We have used the best value guides available through the EEF https://educationendowmentfoundation.org.uk/ in order to maximise the potential outcomes for our children.
Supporting all children is a priority both academically and socially on their return to school after the National Lockdown. In addition, being able to ensure that should any such events happen again, school, staff, children and families are in a strong position to be able to continue the education of our children is key.
As a small school, we know our children and families well and our staff are well-skilled at assessing children and knowing where each child is currently and what is needed to support good progress.
If you have any questions relating to the use of the Covid Catch-Up funding or the National Tutoring Service, please do not hesitate to contact school.
