Following the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent closure of schools, the
government issued an amount of catch-up funding to all schools to support with
closing gaps in learning. The amount of funding allocated is based on pupil numbers
and is paid over two financial years.
When deciding how to allocate and spend our money we have considered our pupils
and what strategies have worked in the past. We have also used the government
recommended, 'COVID-19 Support Guide for Schools' published by the Education
Endowment Foundation (EEF) to identify the best strategies, based on long term
research, that will enable us to achieve the most positive outcomes.
