COVID-19 Catch Up Premium Funding
We are committed to providing the highest quality education for all our children regardless of background or barrier to learning in all aspect of school life.
“Children from disadvantaged backgrounds are likely to have been more affected particularly severely by closures and may need more support to return to school and settle back into school life. Whilst all pupils will benefit from the EEF recommendations, it is likely that some forms of support will be particularly beneficial to disadvantaged.”
(Covid-19 Support Guide for Schools – June 2020)
Great teaching is the most important lever schools have to improve outcomes for their pupils. Every pupil will have been affected differently by Covid-19. Enabling teachers to assess pupils’ wellbeing and learning needs is likely to make it easier for teachers and other school staff to provide effective support.
