Covid Catch-Up Funding
The Government have allocated schools funding to support all children on their return to school from the lockdown during the 2019-20 academic year. Children will have had their education disrupted in different ways and the funding is to be used by schools to ensure that all students return to school smoothly and get back on track quickly. Schools have the flexibility to use this funding in the best ways to suit their cohort and circumstances and should be able to account for how they plan to use it. Our draft plan for approval by governors can be seen below:
Year 7 Catch-Up Premium
The DfE has made additional funds available for improving the attainment of students who did not
achieve the expected standard in English (Reading) or Maths in their end of Key Stage 2 tests. This
funding is known as the Year 7 Catch-Up Premium. Students should be included if they have not
achieved a score of 100+ in English and/or Maths at the end of Key Stage 2.
The report below summarises how we spent last year’s funding. It also provides information on the
outcomes of the spending and the improvements made amongst our students.
