COVID Catch Up Premium

Covid Catch-up Premium Plan 2020/21

 

Number of pupils = 119

Total Catch-up Premium = £9520

 

Coronavirus Covid-19 has resulted in unprecedented disruption to pupils’ learning both in the last academic year and also this year, firstly, with a nationwide full lockdown and then with isolation due to positive cases.  This has had an impact on all pupils in our school, with those children who are from vulnerable or the most disadvantaged backgrounds being hit hardest.  The effect of lost time in school and inconsistent school attendance on learning and development will be considerable.

 

The catch-up premium has been designed to mitigate the effects of the unique disruption caused by the Coronavirus pandemic and is only available for this academic year.  The funds must be spent in the best way for the school's pupils to make the best progress possible to 'catch-up' with lost learning.

  

At Mountnessing we have used the Education Endowment Fund Guide to Support School Planning: A Tiered Approach to 2020-21.  This guide aims to support school leaders with their planning for the unpredictable academic year to come. It proposes a tiered model that focuses upon (1) high-quality teaching, (2) targeted academic support, and (3) wider strategies. It has been developed in partnership with expert school leaders from across the country.
